Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0129
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0129.

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer
for UNIX operating systems.

It was discovered that the Red Hat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:1595 did not
fully correct the use-after-free flaw in the way CUPS handled references in
its file descriptors-handling interface. A remote attacker could send
specially-crafted queries to the CUPS server, causing it to crash.

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

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
