Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3713-1
July 11, 2018

cups vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 17.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in CUPS.

Software Description:
- cups: Common UNIX Printing System(tm)

Details:

It was discovered that CUPS incorrectly handled certain print jobs with
invalid usernames. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause
CUPS to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu 17.10 and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. (CVE-2017-18248)

Dan Bastone discovered that the CUPS dnssd backend incorrectly handled
certain environment variables. A local attacker could possibly use this
issue to escalate privileges. (CVE-2018-4180)

Eric Rafaloff and John Dunlap discovered that CUPS incorrectly handled
certain include directives. A local attacker could possibly use this issue
to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2018-4181)

Dan Bastone discovered that the CUPS AppArmor profile incorrectly confined
the dnssd backend. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to escape
confinement. (CVE-2018-6553)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  cups                            2.2.7-1ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 17.10:
  cups                            2.2.4-7ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  cups                            2.1.3-4ubuntu0.5

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  cups                            1.7.2-0ubuntu1.10

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
