Ubuntu: HPLIP vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu It was discovered that the hpssd tool of hplip did not validate privileges in the alert-mailing function. A local attacker could exploit this to gain privileges and send e-mail messages from the account of the hplip user. This update alters hplip behaviour by preventing users from setting alerts and by moving alert configuration to a root-controlled /etc/hp/alerts.conf file. (CVE-2008-2940) It was discovered that the hpssd tool of hplip did not correctly handle certain commands. A local attacker could use a specially crafted packet to crash hpssd, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2008-2941)
===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-674-1          November 19, 2008
hplip vulnerabilities
CVE-2008-2940, CVE-2008-2941
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  hplip                           0.9.7-4ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
  hplip                           2.7.7.dfsg.1-0ubuntu5.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  hplip                           2.8.2-0ubuntu8.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that the hpssd tool of hplip did not validate
privileges in the alert-mailing function. A local attacker could
exploit this to gain privileges and send e-mail messages from the
account of the hplip user. This update alters hplip behaviour by
preventing users from setting alerts and by moving alert configuration
to a root-controlled /etc/hp/alerts.conf file. (CVE-2008-2940)

It was discovered that the hpssd tool of hplip did not correctly
handle certain commands. A local attacker could use a specially
crafted packet to crash hpssd, leading to a denial of service.
