Description Luke Macken (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-15 12:43:18 UTC
Alvaro Martinez Echevarria discovered a vulnerability in the CUPS print server where an empty UDP datagram sent to port 631 (the default port that cupsd listens to) would disable browsing. This would prevent cupsd from seeing any remote printers or any future remote printer changes.
