MDKA-2005:047 : apcupsd

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The apcupsd package as shipped with Mandriva Linux 2006 was missing
the main apcupsd configuration file. As a result, those upgrading
from earlier versions would have their existing configuration file
moved to /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf.rpmsave with no new configuration
file to replace it, which would prevent the service from starting.

The new packages provide the configuration file. Users affected by
this will manually need to move back the .rpmsave configuration file,
however.
