Problem description

Updated cups packages fixes bugs and security vulnerabilities:

During the process of CUPS socket activation code refactoring in favour
of systemd capability a security flaw was found in the way CUPS service
honoured Listen localhost:631 cupsd.conf configuration option. The
setting was recognized properly for IPv4-enabled systems, but failed to
be correctly applied for IPv6-enabled systems. As a result, a remote
attacker could use this flaw to obtain (unauthorized) access to the
CUPS web-based administration interface (CVE-2012-6094). The fix for
now is to not enable IP-based systemd socket activation by default.

This update adds a patch to correct printing problems with some USB
connected printers in cups 1.5.4.

Further, this update should correct possible printing problems with
the following printers since the update to cups 1.5.4.

Canon, Inc. PIXMA iP4200
Canon, Inc. PIXMA iP4300
Canon, Inc. MP500
Canon, Inc. MP510

Brother Industries, Ltd, HL-1440 Laser Printer

Additionally, patches have been added to fix printing from newer apple
devices and to correct an error in the \%post script which prevented
the cups service from starting when freshly installed.
