Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-01-20 23:05:16 EST
Temporary file handling flaws were found in several places in hplip. Because a predicatable temporary filenames are used, an attacker could use a symlink attack to overwrite an arbitrary file with the privileges of the process running hplip.

This is a different flaw than CVE-2011-2722.
