Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : cups update (USN-2839-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 87464
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionAs a security improvement against the POODLE attack, this update disables SSLv3 support in the CUPS web interface.
For legacy environments where SSLv3 support is still required, it can be re-enabled by adding 'SSLOptions AllowSSL3' to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected cups package.
