Update
=====

CUPS was vulnerable to multiple vulnerabilities and as a fix we recommended upgrading to version 1.1.23_rc1. This version is affected by a remote Denial Of Service, so we now recommend upgrading to the final 1.1.23 release which does not have any known vulnerability.

The updated sections appear below.

Affected packages
================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-print/cups < 1.1.23 >= 1.1.23

Resolution
=========

All CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-print/cups-1.1.23"

Availability
===========

This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website:
