                        SCO Security Advisory

Subject:                OpenLinux: cups denial of service vulnerability
Advisory number:        CSSA-2004-012.0
Issue date:             2004 March 03
Cross reference:        sr887386 fz528509 erg712497 CAN-2003-0788
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        Unknown vulnerability in the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP)
        implementation in CUPS before 1.1.19 allows remote attackers to
        cause a denial of service via certain inputs to the IPP port. 

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
        has assigned the name CAN-2003-0788 to this issue.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Package
        ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server          prior to cups-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm
                                        prior to cups-devel-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm
                                        prior to cups-libs-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation     prior to cups-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm
                                        prior to cups-devel-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm
                                        prior to cups-libs-1.1.20-1.i386.rpm


3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages.  This patch 
        obsoletes two cups rpm packages namely cups-client and cups-ppd.  
        These packages need to be removed from the system. 

        To remove cups-client and cups-ppd from your system, as the root 
        user issue the following commands:

        #rpm -e cups-client
        #rpm -e cups-ppd

        Note: Warning messages about directories not removed is expected.
        
        After the two obsoleted packages are removed, you can install the 
        updated packages manually or use the Caldera System Updater, 
        called cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment).
