    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"
