Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Updated CUPS packages fix security vulnerability
Advisory ID: RHSA-2004:449-01
Issue date: 2004-09-15
Updated on: 2004-09-15
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Keywords: DoS
CVE Names: CAN-2004-0558
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated cups packages that fix a denial of service vulnerability are now available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, ppc64, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) is a print spooler.

Alvaro Martinez Echevarria reported a bug in the CUPS Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) implementation in versions of CUPS prior to 1.1.21. An attacker could send a carefully crafted UDP packet to the IPP port which could cause CUPS to stop listening to the port and result in a denial of service. In order to exploit this bug, an attacker would need to have the ability to send a UDP packet to the IPP port (by default 631). The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0558 to this issue.

All users of cups should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch as well as a fix for a non-exploitable off-by-one bug.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:
