Insight

Insight

Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing (HPLIP) provides drivers for Hewlett-Packard printers and multifunction peripherals, and tools for installing, using, and configuring them. A flaw was found in the way certain HPLIP tools discovered devices using the SNMP protocol. If a user ran certain HPLIP tools that search for supported devices using SNMP, and a malicious user is able to send specially-crafted SNMP responses, it could cause those HPLIP tools to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running them. (CVE-2010-4267) Red Hat would like to thank Sebastian Krahmer of the SuSE Security Team for reporting this issue. Users of hplip should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
