Ubuntu Security Notice USN-708-1 January 13, 2009 hplip vulnerability
https://launchpad.net/bugs/191299

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10: hplip 2.7.7.dfsg.1-0ubuntu5.3

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that an installation script in the HPLIP package would change permissions on the hplip config files located in user's home directories. A local user could exploit this and change permissions on arbitrary files upon an HPLIP installation or upgrade, which could lead to root privileges.
