GLSA-201404-01 : CUPS: Arbitrary file read/write
High Nessus Plugin ID 73390
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201404-01 (CUPS: Arbitrary file read/write)
Members of the lpadmin group have admin access to the web interface, where they can edit the config file and set some “dangerous” directives (like the logfilenames), which enable them to read or write files as the user running the CUPS webserver.
A local attacker could possibly exploit this vulnerability to read or write files as the user running the CUPS webserver.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-print/cups-1.6.2-r5'
