GLSA-201203-17 : HPLIP: Multiple vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 58382
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-17 (HPLIP: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Two vulnerabilities have been found in HPLIP:
The 'hpmud_get_pml()' function in pml.c contains a boundary error which could cause a stack-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-4267).
The 'send_data_to_stdout()' function in hpcupsfax.cpp creates insecure temporary files (CVE-2011-2722).
A remote attacker might send specially crafted SNMP reponses, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll HPLIP users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-print/hplip-3.11.10'
