Synopsis: Important: hplip security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2007:0960-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2007-0960.html
Issue date: 2007-10-11
Updated on: 2007-10-11
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CVE-2007-5208
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

An updated hplip package to correct a security flaw is now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

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

3. Problem description:

The hplip (Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing Project) package
provides drivers for HP printers and multi-function peripherals.

Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the way the hplip hpssd daemon handled user
input. A local attacker could send a specially crafted request to the hpssd
daemon, possibly allowing them to run arbitrary commands as the root user.
(CVE-2007-5208). On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the SELinux targeted
policy for hpssd which is enabled by default, blocks the ability to exploit
this issue to run arbitrary code.

Users of hplip are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches to resolve this issue.

4. Solution:

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