3. Description:

 

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer

for Linux, UNIX, and similar operating systems.

 

It was discovered that CUPS administrative users (members of the

SystemGroups groups) who are permitted to perform CUPS configuration

changes via the CUPS web interface could manipulate the CUPS configuration

to gain unintended privileges. Such users could read or write arbitrary

files with the privileges of the CUPS daemon, possibly allowing them to

run arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2012-5519)

 

After installing this update, the ability to change certain CUPS

configuration directives remotely will be disabled by default. The newly

introduced ConfigurationChangeRestriction directive can be used to enable

the changing of the restricted directives remotely. Refer to Red Hat

Bugzilla bug 875898 for more details and the list of restricted directives.

 

All users of cups are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which

contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing this

update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted automatically.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to

use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

 

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

 

875898 - CVE-2012-5519 cups: privilege escalation for users of the CUPS SystemGroup group
