Multiple errors in CUPS might allow for the remote execution of arbitrary code or DNS rebinding attacks.
|Package||net-print/cups on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.3.10|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.3.10|
CUPS, the Common Unix Printing System, is a full-featured print server.
The following issues were reported in CUPS:
A remote attacker might send or entice a user to send a specially crafted print job to CUPS, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the configured CUPS user -- by default this is "lp", or a Denial of Service. Furthermore, the web interface could be used to conduct DNS rebinding attacks.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-print/cups-1.3.10"
