Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:1110
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:1110.

Foomatic is a comprehensive, spooler-independent database of printers,
printer drivers, and driver descriptions. The package also includes
spooler-independent command line interfaces to manipulate queues and to
print files and manipulate print jobs. foomatic-rip is a print filter
written in C.

An input sanitization flaw was found in the foomatic-rip print filter. An
attacker could submit a print job with the username, title, or job options
set to appear as a command line option that caused the filter to use a
specified PostScript printer description (PPD) file, rather than the
administrator-set one. This could lead to arbitrary code execution with the
privileges of the lp user. (CVE-2011-2964)

All foomatic users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
a backported patch to resolve 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
