==========================================================Ubuntu Security Notice USN-708-1           January 13, 2009
hplip vulnerability
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.1-0ubuntu5.3

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

Details follow:

It was discovered that an installation script in the HPLIP package would
change permissions on the hplip config files located in user's home directories.
A local user could exploit this and change permissions on arbitrary files
upon an HPLIP installation or upgrade, which could lead to root privileges.
