Problem description

A number of problems were found by the SuSE security team recently during an internal audit of the CUPS printing package. These problems have been resolved with the latest CUPS release which include temp file creation vulnerabilities, potential buffer overflows, and other security enhancements. It is highly recommended that all Linux-Mandrake users upgrade to this new version of CUPS. Due to prior packaging problems, users are advised to completely remove the following CUPS packages if they are currently installed on your system: cups-common libcups1 libcups1-devel You can do this by using "rpm -e [package] --nodeps" for each package. Once that is complete, you can upgrade CUPS using MandrakeUpdate.
