MDKSA-2003:060: LPRng Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the LPRng package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:060 (LPRng).
Karol Lewandowski discovered a problem with psbanner, a printer filter that
creates a PostScript format banner. psbanner creates a temporary file for
debugging purposes when it is configured as a filter, and does not check whether
or not this file already exists or is a symlink. The filter will overwrite this
file, or the file it is pointing to (if it is a symlink) with its current
environment and called arguments with the user id that LPRng is running as.
