Package name cups
Date May 10th, 2001
Advisory ID MDKSA-2001:048
Affected versions 7.2, 8.0
Synopsis Updated cups packages fix security problems

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
