Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 9.10 / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : cups, cupsys vulnerability (USN-1012-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 50490

Language:

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Emmanuel Bouillon discovered that CUPS did not properly handle certain Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. In the default installation in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and later, attackers would be isolated by the CUPS AppArmor profile.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
