Fedora 14 : cups-1.4.8-2.fc14 (2011-11221)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 56148


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update avoids a GIF reader loop (CVE-2011-2896). The new upstream release fixes a number of scheduler, driver, and backend issues.

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.
