            Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory

Package name: cups Date: February 1st, 2001 Advisory ID: MDKSA-2001:020

Affected versions: 7.2


Problem Description:

A problem exists in all versions of CUPS prior to 1.1.5 with the httpGets() function. It could go into an infinite loop if a line longer than the input buffer size was sent by a client. This could be used as a DoS attack. As well, all occurances of sprintf() calls were changed to snprintf(), and all occurances of strcpy() calls were changed to strncpy() calls, both of which protect against buffer overflows. Finally, CUPS now defaults to not broadcasting the printer information anymore by default, and by default access is only allowed from the local machine.


Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this with the command: rpm --checksig package.rpm You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team at http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites listed at:

http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory. For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for Linux-Mandrake 7.2, look for it in "updates/7.2/RPMS/". Updated source RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to update.
