|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'hplip'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'hplip'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The hplip packages contain the Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing
Project (HPLIP), which provides drivers for Hewlett-Packard printers and
HPLIP communicated with PolicyKit for authorization via a D-Bus API that is
vulnerable to a race condition. This could lead to intended PolicyKit
authorizations being bypassed. This update modifies HPLIP to communicate
with PolicyKit via a different API that is not vulnerable to the race
All users of hplip are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
hplip on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
