-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ______________________________________________________________________________ SCO Security Advisory Subject: OpenLinux: cups denial of service vulnerability Advisory number: CSSA-2004-012.0 Issue date: 2004 March 03 Cross reference: sr887386 fz528509 erg712497 CAN-2003-0788 ______________________________________________________________________________ 1. Problem Description Unknown vulnerability in the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) implementation in CUPS before 1.1.19 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via certain inputs to the IPP port. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0788 to this issue. 2. Vulnerable Supported Versions System Package ---------------------------------------------------------------------- OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server prior to cups-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm prior to cups-devel-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm prior to cups-libs-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation prior to cups-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm prior to cups-devel-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm prior to cups-libs-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm 3. Solution The proper solution is to install the latest packages. This patch obsoletes two cups rpm packages namely cups-client and cups-ppd. These packages need to be removed from the system. To remove cups-client and cups-ppd from your system, as the root user issue the following commands: #rpm -e cups-client #rpm -e cups-ppd Note: Warning messages about directories not removed is expected. After the two obsoleted packages are removed, you can install the updated packages manually or use the Caldera System Updater, called cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment). 4.
