Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.64069
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1082
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:1082.

The Common UNIX® Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer
for UNIX operating systems. The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) allows
users to print and manage printing-related tasks over a network.

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the CUPS IPP routine, used for
processing incoming IPP requests for the CUPS scheduler. An attacker could
use this flaw to send specially-crafted IPP requests that would crash the
cupsd daemon. (CVE-2009-0949)

Red Hat would like to thank Anibal Sacco from Core Security Technologies
for reporting this issue.

Users of cups are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing this
update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted automatically.

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
