Update
======

CUPS was vulnerable to multiple vulnerabilities and as a fix we
recommended upgrading to version 1.1.23_rc1. This version is affected
by a remote Denial Of Service, so we now recommend upgrading to the
final 1.1.23 release which does not have any known vulnerability.

The updated sections appear below.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-print/cups < 1.1.23 >= 1.1.23

Resolution
==========

All CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-print/cups-1.1.23"

Availability
============

This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at
the Gentoo Security Website:

http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200412-25.xml

Concerns?
=========

Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the
confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost
importance to us. Any security concerns should be addressed to
security@gentoo.org or alternatively, you may file a bug at
http://bugs.gentoo.org.
