Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51309
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:049
Summary:Redhat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:049
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:049.

The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for
UNIX(R) operating systems.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Decrypt::makeFileKey2 function of
Xpdf which also affects the CUPS pdftops filter due to a shared codebase.
An attacker who has the ability to send a malicious PDF file to a printer
could possibly execute arbitrary code as the lp user. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-0064 to this issue.

Red Hat believes that the Exec-Shield technology (enabled by default since
Update 3) will block attempts to remotely exploit these buffer overflow
vulnerabilities on x86 architectures.

All users of cups should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
