Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.870742
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for foomatic RHSA-2011:1110-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'foomatic'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'foomatic'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
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.

Affected Software/OS:
foomatic on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
