=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Low: hplip3 security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2013:0133-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-0133.html
Issue date:        2013-01-08
CVE Names:         CVE-2011-2722 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated hplip3 packages that fix one security issue and one bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing (HPLIP) provides drivers for
Hewlett-Packard (HP) printers and multifunction peripherals.

It was found that the HP CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) fax filter in
HPLIP created a temporary file in an insecure way. A local attacker could
use this flaw to perform a symbolic link attack, overwriting arbitrary
files accessible to a process using the fax filter (such as the
hp3-sendfax tool). (CVE-2011-2722)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Previous modifications of the hplip3 package to allow it to be installed
alongside the original hplip package introduced several problems to fax
support; for example, the hp-sendfax utility could become unresponsive.
These problems have been fixed with this update. (BZ#501834)

All users of hplip3 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

501834 - hplip hp-sendfax PyQt combination is broken
725830 - CVE-2011-2722 hplip: insecure temporary file handling
