Red Hat: Updated cups packages fix a security issue

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(R) operating systems. The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is a standard network protocol for remote printing, as well as managing print jobs. A flaw was found in the way CUPS handles the addition and removal of remote shared printers via IPP. A remote attacker could send malicious UDP IPP packets causing the CUPS daemon to crash. Fixed packages are available from updates.redhat.com.

1. Summary:

Updated cups packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

3. Description:

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer
for UNIX(R) operating systems. The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is a
standard network protocol for remote printing, as well as managing print
jobs.

A flaw was found in the way CUPS handles the addition and removal of remote
shared printers via IPP. A remote attacker could send malicious UDP IPP
packets causing the CUPS daemon to crash. (CVE-2008-0882)

Note: the default configuration of CUPS on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will
only accept requests of this type from the local subnet. This issue did not
affect the versions of CUPS as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or
4.

All cups users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.
