RedHat Update for hplip3 RHSA-2013:0133-01

Please Install the Updated Packages.
Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging and Printing (HPLIP) provides drivers for Hewlett-Packard (HP) printers and multifunction peripherals. It was found that the HP CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) fax filter in HPLIP created a temporary file in an insecure way. A local attacker could use this flaw to perform a symbolic link attack, overwriting arbitrary files accessible to a process using the fax filter (such as the hp3-sendfax tool). (CVE-2011-2722) This update also fixes the following bug: * Previous modifications of the hplip3 package to allow it to be installed alongside the original hplip package introduced several problems to fax support for example, the hp-sendfax utility could become unresponsive. These problems have been fixed with this update. (BZ#501834) All users of hplip3 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
