Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.54118
Category:SuSE Local Security Checks
Title:SuSE Security Advisory SUSE-SA:2003:002 (cups)
Summary:SuSE Security Advisory SUSE-SA:2003:002 (cups)
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory SUSE-SA:2003:002.

CUPS is a well known and widely used printing system for unix-like
systems. iDFENSE reported several security issues with CUPS that can
lead to local and remote root compromise. The following list
includes all vulnerabilities:
- integer overflow in HTTP interface to gain remote
access with CUPS privileges
- local file race condition to gain root (bug mentioned
above has to be exploited first)
- remotely add printers
- remote denial-of-service attack due to negative length in
memcpy() call
- integer overflow in image handling code to gain higher privileges
- gain local root due to buffer overflow of 'options' buffer
- design problem to gain local root (needs added printer, see above)
- wrong handling of zero width images can be abused to gain higher
privileges
- file descriptor leak and denial-of-service due to missing checks
of return values of file/socket operations

Solution:
Update your system with the packages as indicated in
the referenced security advisory.
