Description

pysmb.py in system-config-printer 0.6.x and 0.7.x, as used in foomatic-gui and possibly other products, allows remote SMB servers to execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the (1) NetBIOS or (2) workgroup name, which are not properly handled when searching for network printers.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-system-config-printer
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-system-config-printer-gui
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-system-config-printer-libs

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.
