<synopsis>Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in HPLIP, the worst of
which may allow execution of arbitrary code.

<background>
<p>The Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing system (HPLIP) provides
drivers for HP's inkjet and laser printers, scanners and fax machines.
</p>

<description>
<p>Two vulnerabilities have been found in HPLIP:</p>
<ul>
<li>The "hpmud_get_pml()" function in pml.c contains a boundary error
which could cause a stack-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-4267).
</li>
<li>The "send_data_to_stdout()" function in hpcupsfax.cpp creates
insecure temporary files (CVE-2011-2722).
</li>
</ul>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>A remote attacker might send specially crafted SNMP reponses, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service
condition. Furthermore, a local attacker could perform symlink attacks to
overwrite arbitrary files.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All HPLIP users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-print/hplip-3.11.10"
</code>
</resolution>
