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.

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated cups packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in scheduler/client.c in Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) before 1.7.2 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the URL path, related to the is_path_absolute function (CVE-2014-2856).

In CUPS before 1.7.4, a local user with privileges of group=lp can write symbolic links in the rss directory and use that to gain '@SYSTEM' group privilege with cupsd (CVE-2014-3537).

It was discovered that the web interface in CUPS incorrectly validated permissions on rss files and directory index files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass file permissions and read arbitrary files, possibly leading to a privilege escalation (CVE-2014-5029, CVE-2014-5030, CVE-2014-5031).

A malformed file with an invalid page header and compressed raster data can trigger a buffer overflow in cupsRasterReadPixels (CVE-2014-9679).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
