- Date Reported:
- 01 Jan 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2015-0839.
- More information:
The hplip plugin download function verifies the driver using a short-key. This is not secure because it is trivial to generate keys with arbitrary key IDs.

Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 3.12.6-3.1+deb7u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your hplip packages.
