Synopsis :

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

Description :

Bugs in the msec package have been corrected:

msec wasn't properly parsing the output on security checks to check
ownership of files, reporting files as unowned when they were in fact
properly owned by a valid user.

The /var/lib/msec/security.conf was no longer being generated which
prevented msec from running.

The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
