Title:RedHat Update for cups-filters RHSA-2014:1795-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'cups-filters'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'cups-filters'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The cups-filters package contains backends, filters, and other software
that was once part of the core CUPS distribution but is now maintained

An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way the process_browse_data()
function of cups-browsed handled certain browse packets. A remote attacker
could send a specially crafted browse packet that, when processed by
cups-browsed, would crash the cups-browsed daemon. (CVE-2014-4337)

A flaw was found in the way the cups-browsed daemon interpreted the
'BrowseAllow' directive in the cups-browsed.conf file. An attacker able to
add a malformed 'BrowseAllow' directive to the cups-browsed.conf file could
use this flaw to bypass intended access restrictions. (CVE-2014-4338)

All cups-filters users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing
this update, the cups-browsed daemon will be restarted automatically.

Affected Software/OS:
cups-filters on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
