Synopsis
========

CUPS leaks information about user names and passwords when using remote
printing to SMB-shared printers which require authentication.

Background
==========

The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) is a cross-platform print
spooler.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package         /   Vulnerable   /                     Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-print/cups     <= 1.1.20-r2                     *>= 1.1.20-r3
                        == 1.1.21                         >= 1.1.21-r1

Description
===========

When printing to a SMB-shared printer requiring authentication, CUPS
leaks the user name and password to a logfile.

Impact
======

A local user could gain knowledge of sensitive authentication data.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All CUPS users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=net-print/cups-1.1.20-r3"
    # emerge ">=net-print/cups-1.1.20-r3"
