Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.70996
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1265-1 (python-cupshelpers)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1265-1 (python-cupshelpers)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to python-cupshelpers
announced via advisory USN-1265-1.

Details:

Marc Deslauriers discovered that system-config-printer's cupshelpers
scripts used by the Ubuntu automatic printer driver download service
queried the OpenPrinting database using an insecure connection. If a remote
attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could
be exploited to install altered packages and repositories.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 11.10:
python-cupshelpers 1.3.6+20110831-0ubuntu9.4

Ubuntu 11.04:
python-cupshelpers 1.3.1+20110222-0ubuntu16.5
