Description

It was discovered that HPLIP incorrectly handled temporary files when using the fax capabilities. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to overwrite arbitrary files. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. (CVE-2011-2722)

Tim Waugh discovered that HPLIP incorrectly handled temporary files when printing. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to overwrite arbitrary files. In the default installation of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Ubuntu 12.10, this should be prevented by the Yama link restrictions. (CVE-2013-0200).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
