Detail

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in cups:

lppasswd in CUPS before 1.7.1, when running with setuid privileges, allows local users to read portions of arbitrary files via a modified HOME environment variable and a symlink attack involving .cups/client.conf (CVE-2013-6891).

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in scheduler/client.c in Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) before 1.7.2 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the URL path, related to the is_path_absolute function (CVE-2014-2856).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
