MDKSA-2001:048: cups Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the cups package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:048 (cups).

The version of cups shipped with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 has a problem where when a
user prints a multi-page PostScript file with embedded pictures, the pages
following the first with the picture are all printed on the same page, one on
top of the other. From multi-page Abiword files (only text) only the last page
is printed. This update resolves this bug. As well, the upstream 1.1.7 release
of cups fixes some security issues.
