Description Vincent Danen 2010-12-13 19:08:17 UTC
Sebastian Krahmer reported a flaw in how hplip discovered SNMP devices.  If
certain hplip commands were run that queried SNMP devices, and a malicious user
were able to send crafted SNMP responses, it could cause the running hplip tool
to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the tool.


Red Hat would like to thank Sebastian Krahmer of the SuSE Security Team for reporting this issue.
