Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51003
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:150
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:150.

LPRng is a print spooler. LPRng includes a program, psbanner, that can be
used to produce Postscript banner pages to separate print jobs.

A vulnerability has been found in psbanner, which creates in an insecure
manner a temporary file with a known filename. An attacker could create a
symbolic link and cause arbitrary files to be written as the lp user.

Note: psbanner is not used by the default Red Hat Enterprise Linux LPRng
configuration.

Users that have configured LPRng to use psbanner should install these
updated packages, which contain a patch so that psbanner does not create
the temporary file.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
