A foomatic update has been released for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : foomatic
Version : 3.0.1
Release : 3.1
Summary : Foomatic printer database.
Description :
Foomatic is a comprehensive, spooler-independent database of printers, printer drivers, and driver descriptions. It contains utilities to generate driver description files and printer queues for CUPS, LPD, LPRng, and PDQ using the database. There is also the possibility to read the PJL options out of PJL-capable laser printers and take them into account at the driver description file generation.

There are spooler-independent command line interfaces to manipulate queues (foomatic-configure) and to print files/manipulate jobs (foomatic printjob).

The site http://www.linuxprinting.org/ is based on this database.

Update Information:

Sebastian Krahmer reported a bug in the cupsomatic and foomatic-rip print filters, used by the CUPS print spooler. An attacker who has printing access could send a carefully named file to the print server causing arbitrary commands to be executed as root. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0801 to this issue.
