 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:234

 Package : cups
 Date    : November 15, 2010
 Affected: Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in cups:
 
 Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the web interface
 in CUPS, allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of
 administrators for requests that change settings (CVE-2010-0540).
 
 The _WriteProlog function in texttops.c in texttops in the Text Filter
 subsystem in CUPS before 1.4.4 does not check the return values
 of certain calloc calls, which allows remote attackers to cause a
 denial of service (NULL pointer dereference or heap memory corruption)
 or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted file (CVE-2010-0542).
 
 The web interface in CUPS, reads uninitialized memory during handling
 of form variables, which allows context-dependent attackers to obtain
 sensitive information from cupsd process memory via unspecified vectors
 (CVE-2010-1748).
 
 The cupsFileOpen function in CUPS before 1.4.4 allows local users,
 with lp group membership, to overwrite arbitrary files via a
 symlink attack on the (1) /var/cache/cups/remote.cache or (2)
 /var/cache/cups/job.cache file (CVE-2010-2431).
 
 ipp.c in cupsd in CUPS 1.4.4 and earlier does not properly allocate
 memory for attribute values with invalid string data types, which
 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free
 and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a
 crafted IPP request (CVE-2010-2941).
 
 The updated packages have been upgraded to cups 1.3.10 and patched
 to correct these issues.
