Description

Updated system-config-printer packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

system-config-printer is a print queue configuration tool with a graphical user interface.

It was found that system-config-printer did not properly sanitize NetBIOS and workgroup names when searching for network printers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running system-config-printer. (CVE-2011-2899)

All users of system-config-printer are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. Running instances of system-config-printer must be restarted for this update to take effect.
