Linux print problem and change

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

The FSR reported a security problem with printing on Fedora Linux, that made it possible to print using the budget of a different user. As a temporary emergency solution, one has to supply a password when printing login server, like lilo and stitch, to a budgeted printer. See the print information to print from within an application that doesn’t ask for a password. A final solution, the deployment of a central CUPS-server, couldn’t be realized in a very short timeframe. Thanks to the FSR for reporting this problem.
