22.1.1

Build 66715
Print Provider version 109.27.0.6568
Print Deploy server version 1.7.2336
08 Jun, 2023

New Features:

Introduced a new security hardening feature designed to uplift default security and provide additional layers of protection. We’ve added configuration and new defaults to make it hard for attackers to initiate a chained attack.

This includes a new security.properties file to separate the configuration of some components from the web administration interface. These include:

  • Print Scripting and Device Scripting settings, such as the ability to run executables and unsafe code from scripts
  • Explicit granting of permission to run external executables such as those used with custom authentication providers and other plugins

For the vast majority of customers, no action will be required after the upgrade. Please see the PaperCut MF/NG 22.1.1 upgrade checklist for more information. [PO-1327]

Security:

  • Addressed a Path Traversal vulnerability in the Application Server and Site Server. Under specific conditions, this could potentially allow an attacker read-only access to the server’s file system. CVE-2023-31046 . [PO-1277]
  • Addressed a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the Application Server, which, under specific conditions, could potentially enable an attacker to alter security settings or execute arbitrary code. This could be exploited if the target is an admin with a current login session. Exploiting this would typically involve the possibility of deceiving an admin into clicking a specially crafted malicious link, potentially leading to unauthorized changes. CVE-2023-2533 . [PO-1366]
  • Introduced security hardening layer through security.properties files - as per new features section above.
  • Increased the minimum password length requirement for newly created internal users to 8 characters. [PO-1373]

For more information refer to the June Security Bulletin .

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that caused ancillary PaperCut executables including the PC-Client to crash with an error when run in some Windows environments. [PO-1295]
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the Accessible UI for PaperCut 22.0.11 and 22.0.12 to display a blank screen after login. [PO-1400]

18.3.2

Build 47394
15 Nov, 2018

For a snapshot view of 18.3 features, see what’s New and Noteworthy .

New Features

  • Google Cloud Directory (G Suite and Google Cloud Identity):

    • Sync users from Google Cloud Directory, which supports both G Suite and Google Cloud Identity.
    • Users can now authenticate using their Google credentials on all PaperCut interfaces.
    • Google Cloud Directory can be configured as either a primary or secondary sync source, and is fully compatible to run alongside another sync source such as Active Directory, giving administrators a flexible migration path.
    • You can now configure a ‘Sign in with Google’ button to display on the User web interface, Admin web interface and Mobility Print on Chromebooks. This lets users sign in to PaperCut NG without retyping their credentials.
  • Mobility Print on Chromebooks: Users can now click a ‘Sign in with Google’ button instead of typing their credentials.

Enhancements

  • Installation: When installing PaperCut NG, you can now skip the step to select a user/group sync source and configure that separately later. This speeds up the installation.

  • Security:

    • Port 80: Tightened security on port 80 when used for payment gateways to ensure unnecessary information is not included in the http header.
    • Site Server: You can now specify a list of IP addresses or subnets that are allowed to submit information to the PaperCut NG Application Server. This is configured in Options > Advanced > Security section (or using the auth.site.allowed-addresses config key).
  • Admin web interface: In ‘Options’ there is now a ‘Tools’ tab. The Tools page lists all of the third-party systems that PaperCut NG directly integrates with.

  • Web services API:

    • getPrinterProperty() now supports a ‘printer-id’ option, which is also available via the server-command utility. This option improves the usefulness of the health monitoring API.
    • getSharedAccountProperty() now supports an ‘account-id’ option, which is also available via the server-command utility. This option is useful when setting the printer property advanced-config.override-no-popup-charge-shared-id using setPrinterPropertyMethod().

Fixes

  • Security:

    • It is no longer possible to log in to the Site Server using the locally defined Admin credentials. Admin credentials from the PaperCut MF Application Server must be used.
    • Passwords are now redacted or removed (as appropriate) from the diagnostics zip file.
    • Unsupported HTTP requests are now actively rejected.
    • Mac and Linux with CUPS: Fixed an issue that could cause authentication information to show in the CUPS printer URI.
  • Find Me printing: Simplified the workflow for setting up Find Me printing.

    • When creating a new device (Devices > Create Device), selecting “Enable print release” now also displays the “Enable find me printing support” option.
    • When creating a new device (Devices > Create Device) or when editing an existing device (Device > External Device List > Device Details > Print Release), selecting “Enable print release > Virtual with Hold/Release” now also selects the “Enable find me printing support” option.
  • Load balancing: Fixed an issue that prevented load balancing from consistently printing to the least busy printer.

  • Windows Print Provider: Added ‘Remote Desktop Easy Print’, ‘PDF Architect’, and ’eDocPrintPro’ to the list of ignored virtual printers.

  • PaperCut Print Provider: On a Mac OS of High Sierra or later (using PaperCut CUPS filter) caused printing to fail for Canon and Epson printers.

  • iPrint: Fixed an issue with iPrint where it would run only on OES 2018. It now runs on iPrint Appliances and other OES versions.

  • macOS Mojave (CUPS): Fixed an issue in macOS Mojave causing a short delay in the display and monitoring of printers after installation, and when a new printer is subsequently added.

  • macOS and Linux: Fixed an issue that caused Google Cloud Print and Email to Print to fail, and occasionally Find-Me printing to fail.

  • Moneris eSELECT Plus Payment Gateway: Added an option to set the locale to English or French via the ext-payment-gateway-moneris.properties file (moneris.lang=).

  • Heartland Payment Gateway: Added an option in the ext-payment-gateway-heartland.properties file to improve performance in large environments using Load Balancers, where Heartland on Demand Transfer is enabled (heartland.server.load-balancer).
