Fedora 18 : cups-1.5.4-20.fc18 (2012-19301)

High Nessus Plugin ID 63482


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update addresses CVE-2012-5519 by moving certain configuration keywords into a separate file, cups-files.conf, which cannot be modified by cupsd.

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.
