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"
