Subject:  HP Linux Imaging and Printing Project (HPLIP)


A flaw was found in the way certain HPLIP tools discovered devices using
the SNMP protocol. If a user ran certain HPLIP tools that search for
supported devices using SNMP, and a malicious user is able to send
specially-crafted SNMP responses, it could cause those HPLIP tools to crash
or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running them. (CVE-2010-4267)
