Title:RedHat Update for hplip RHSA-2013:1274-01
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.

Vulnerability Insight:
The hplip packages contain the Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing
Project (HPLIP), which provides drivers for Hewlett-Packard printers and
multi-function peripherals.

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
condition. (CVE-2013-4325)

All users of hplip are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

Affected Software/OS:
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.
