CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'hpijs' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
hpijs on CentOS 6

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
The hplip Linux Distribution Packages contain the Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing Project (HPLIP), which provides drivers for Hewlett-Packard printers and multi-function peripherals. Several temporary file handling flaws were found in HPLIP. A local attacker could use these flaws to perform a symbolic link attack, overwriting arbitrary files accessible to a process using HPLIP. (CVE-2013-0200, CVE-2011-2722) The CVE-2013-0200 issues were discovered by Tim Waugh of Red Hat. The hplip Linux Distribution Packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.12.4, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#731900) This update also fixes the following bugs: * Previously, the hpijs Linux Distribution Package required the obsolete cupsddk-drivers Linux Distribution Package, which was provided by the cups Linux Distribution Package. Under certain circumstances, this dependency caused hpijs installation to fail. This bug has been fixed and hpijs no longer requires cupsddk-drivers. (BZ#829453) * The configuration of the Scanner Access Now Easy (SANE) back end is located in the /etc/sane.d/dll.d/ directory, however, the hp-check utility checked only the /etc/sane.d/dll.conf file. Consequently, hp-check checked for correct installation, but incorrectly reported a problem with the way the SANE back end was installed. With this update, hp-check properly checks for installation problems in both locations as expected. (BZ#683007) All users of hplip are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which fix these issues and add these enhancements.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
