Fedora 16 : cups-1.5.0-6.fc16 (2011-11173)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 56014


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update avoids a GIF reader loop (CVE-2011-2896). This update enables CUPS by default. This update re-introduces support for Avahi.

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


Update the affected cups package.
