Description

Updated CUPS packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(R) operating systems.

When processing a request, the CUPS scheduler would use case-sensitive matching on the queue name to decide which authorization policy should be used. However, queue names are not case-sensitive. An unauthorized user could print to a password-protected queue without needing a password. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2154 to this issue.

Please note that the version of CUPS included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is not vulnerable to this issue.

All users of CUPS should upgrade to these erratum packages which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
