==========================================================Ubuntu Security Notice USN-674-2          November 24, 2008
hplip vulnerabilities
CVE-2008-2940, CVE-2008-2941
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10:
  hplip                           2.7.7.dfsg.1-0ubuntu5.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-674-1 provided packages to fix vulnerabilities in HPLIP. Due to an
internal archive problem, the updates for Ubuntu 7.10 would not install
properly. This update provides fixed packages for Ubuntu 7.10.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that the hpssd tool of hplip did not validate
 privileges in the alert-mailing function. A local attacker could
 exploit this to gain privileges and send e-mail messages from the
 account of the hplip user. This update alters hplip behaviour by
 preventing users from setting alerts and by moving alert configuration
 to a root-controlled /etc/hp/alerts.conf file. (CVE-2008-2940)
 It was discovered that the hpssd tool of hplip did not correctly
 handle certain commands. A local attacker could use a specially
 crafted packet to crash hpssd, leading to a denial of service.
