high Nessus Plugin ID 82633


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


Updated cups-filters package fixes security vulnerability :

cups-browsed in cups-filters before 1.0.66 contained a bug in the remove_bad_chars\(\) function, where it failed to reliably filter out illegal characters if there were two or more subsequent illegal characters, allowing execution of arbitrary commands with the rights of the lp user, using forged print service announcements on DNS-SD servers (CVE-2015-2265).


Update the affected cups-filters, lib64cups-filters-devel and / or lib64cups-filters1 packages.
