Linux Mandrake advisory: CUPS

Author: JT Smith

LWN.net has posted a Linux Mandrake advisory: "A number of problems were found by the SuSE security team recently
during an internal audit of the CUPS printing package. These problems
have been resolved with the latest CUPS release which include temp
file creation vulnerabilities, potential buffer overflows, and other
security enhancements. It is highly recommended that all
Linux-Mandrake users upgrade to this new version of CUPS. Due to prior
packaging problems, users are advised to completely remove the
following CUPS packages if they are currently installed on your system: cups-common, libcups1, and libcups1-devel."
