Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: CUPS: Arbitrary file read/write (GLSA 201404-01)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local
Date: April 07, 2014
Bug(s): #442926
ID: 201404-01

Synopsis

A vulnerability in CUPS may allow for arbitrary file access.

Background

CUPS, the Common Unix Printing System, is a full-featured print server.

Affected Packages

Package: net-print/cups
Vulnerable: < 1.6.2-r5
Unaffected: >= 1.6.2-r5
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Members of the lpadmin group have admin access to the web interface,
where they can
edit the config file and set some “dangerous” directives (like the
logfilenames), which enable them to read or write files as the user
running
the CUPS webserver.


Impact

A local attacker could possibly exploit this vulnerability to read or
write files as the user running the CUPS webserver.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-print/cups-1.6.2-r5"
   


References

CVE-2012-5519
