Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

the required modules on its own as it should have, which could in turn
lead to firewall rules not being loaded on system startup in some
cases.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.

Solution :

Update the affected iptables, iptables-devel and / or iptables-ipv6
packages.
