Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : cups (MDVSA-2010:233)
High Nessus Plugin ID 50607
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMultiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in cups :
Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the web interface in CUPS, allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that change settings (CVE-2010-0540).
ipp.c in cupsd in CUPS 1.4.4 and earlier does not properly allocate memory for attribute values with invalid string data types, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted IPP request (CVE-2010-2941).
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
