 Package name:           cups
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:097

 Problem Description:

 Alvaro Martinez Echevarria discovered a vulnerability in the CUPS
 print server where an empty UDP datagram sent to port 631 (the default
 port that cupsd listens to) would disable browsing.  This would
 prevent cupsd from seeing any remote printers or any future remote
 printer changes.

 The updated packages are patched to protect against this vulnerability.
