Gmane
From: Pat Riehecky <riehecky-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: cups on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Thursday 28th February 2013 22:21:10 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: cups security update
Issue Date:        2013-02-28
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-5519
--

It was discovered that CUPS administrative users (members of the
SystemGroups groups) who are permitted to perform CUPS configuration
changes
via the CUPS web interface could manipulate the CUPS configuration to gain
unintended privileges. Such users could read or write arbitrary files with
the privileges of the CUPS daemon, possibly allowing them to run arbitrary
code with root privileges. (CVE-2012-5519)

After installing this update, the ability to change certain CUPS
configuration directives remotely will be disabled by default. The newly
introduced ConfigurationChangeRestriction directive can be used to enable
the changing of the restricted directives remotely.

After installing this update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted
automatically.
