Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

A new version of the HPLIP driver suite is now available. This new
version introduces support for parallel printers and multi-function
devices; now USB, parallel, and network (TCP/Socket) devices are now
fully supported, as well as the devices that the former HPOJ suite
handled. The new HPLIP suite is now available for Mandrivalinux 2006.

As a result, a new printerdrake is also available that installs HPLIP
rather than HPOJ on all parallel HP printers and multi-function
devices. Other fixes related to HPLIP are also included in the new
printerdrake.
