Description

This update fixes the following issues:

  • CVE-2015-1158 and CVE-2015-1159 fixes a possible privilege escalation via cross-site scripting and bad print job submission used to replace cupsd.conf on server (CUPS STR#4609 CERT-VU-810572 CVE-2015-1158 CVE-2015-1159 bugzilla.suse.com bsc#924208). In general it is crucial to limit access to CUPS to trustworthy users who do not misuse their permission to submit print jobs which means to upload arbitrary data onto the CUPS server, see <a rel="nofollow" href="https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:CUPS_and_SANE_Firewall_settings">https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:CUPS_and_SANE_Firewall_settings</a> and cf. the entries about CVE-2012-5519 below.
