    Package        : cupsys
    Vulnerability  : unsanitised input
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0923
    CERT advisory  : VU#557062
    An information leak has been detected in CUPS, the Common UNIX
    Printing System, which may lead to the disclosure of sensitive
    information, such as user names and passwords which are written into
    log files.
    The used patch only eliminates the authentication information in the
    device URI which is logged in the error_log file.  It does not
    eliminate the URI from the environment and process table, which is why
    the CUPS developers recommend that system administrators do not code
    authentication information in device URIs in the first place.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1.14-5woody7.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1.20final+rc1-9.
    We recommend that you upgrade your CUPS package.
