                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           cups
Date:                   May 10th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:048

Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The version of cups shipped with Linux-Mandrake 8.0 has a problem where
when a user prints a multi-page PostScript file with embedded pictures,
the pages following the first with the picture are all printed on the
same page, one on top of the other.  From multi-page Abiword files
(only text) only the last page is printed.  This update resolves this
bug.  As well, the upstream 1.1.7 release of cups fixes some security
issues.

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team at
  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/security/RPM-GPG-KEYS
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".

You can download the updates directly from one of the mirror sites
listed at:

  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Linux-Mandrake 8.0, look for it in "updates/8.0/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to
update.
