Synopsis: Moderate: cups security update Issue Date: 2013-02-28 CVE Numbers: CVE-2012-5519 -- It was discovered that CUPS administrative users (members of the SystemGroups groups) who are permitted to perform CUPS configuration changes via the CUPS web interface could manipulate the CUPS configuration to gain unintended privileges. Such users could read or write arbitrary files with the privileges of the CUPS daemon, possibly allowing them to run arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2012-5519) After installing this update, the ability to change certain CUPS configuration directives remotely will be disabled by default. The newly introduced ConfigurationChangeRestriction directive can be used to enable the changing of the restricted directives remotely. After installing this update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted automatically. -- SL5 x86_64 cups-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.x86_64.rpm cups-debuginfo-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm cups-debuginfo-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.x86_64.rpm cups-libs-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm cups-libs-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.x86_64.rpm cups-lpd-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.x86_64.rpm cups-devel-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm cups-devel-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.x86_64.rpm i386 cups-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm cups-debuginfo-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm cups-libs-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm cups-lpd-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm cups-devel-1.3.7-30.el5_9.3.i386.rpm SL6 x86_64 cups-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm cups-debuginfo-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-debuginfo-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm cups-libs-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-libs-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm cups-lpd-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm cups-devel-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-devel-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm cups-php-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm i386 cups-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-debuginfo-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-libs-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-lpd-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-devel-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm cups-php-1.4.2-50.el6_4.4.i686.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
