Description

The cupsDoAuthentication function in auth.c in the client in CUPS before 1.4.4, when HAVE_GSSAPI is omitted, does not properly handle a demand for authorization, which allows remote CUPS servers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED responses.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
