Fedora 19 : cups-1.6.4-10.fc19 (2014-9703)

low Nessus Plugin ID 78038
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Upstream patches have been applied to prevent long-running Get-Jobs operations preventing other requests from being handled, and to fix the order of completed jobs in Get-Jobs responses. This update fixes a security flaw potentially leading to a disclosure of information.

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.
