Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0154
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0154.

Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing (HPLIP) provides drivers for
Hewlett-Packard printers and multifunction peripherals, and tools for
installing, using, and configuring them.

A flaw was found in the way certain HPLIP tools discovered devices using
the SNMP protocol. If a user ran certain HPLIP tools that search for
supported devices using SNMP, and a malicious user is able to send
specially-crafted SNMP responses, it could cause those HPLIP tools to crash
or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running them. (CVE-2010-4267)

Red Hat would like to thank Sebastian Krahmer of the SuSE Security Team for
reporting this issue.

Users of hplip should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.

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
