New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated 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).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
