Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60708
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0157
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0157.

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer
for UNIX(R) operating systems. The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is a
standard network protocol for remote printing, as well as managing print
jobs.

A flaw was found in the way CUPS handles the addition and removal of remote
shared printers via IPP. A remote attacker could send malicious UDP IPP
packets causing the CUPS daemon to crash. (CVE-2008-0882)

Note: the default configuration of CUPS on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will
only accept requests of this type from the local subnet. This issue did not
affect the versions of CUPS as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or
4.

All cups users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

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
