MDKA-2006:022 : module-init-tools

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

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The default configuration of module-init-tools was to send a HUP
signal to the CUPS daemon whenever the 'usblp' kernel module is
loaded, for example when a USB printer is plugged in. Due to udev
also sending a HUP signal to the CUPS daemon on pluggin in a USB
printer there were two HUPs one shortly after the other which often
makes the CUPS daemon crashing.

The updated module-init-tools package removes the usblp call
responsible for this bad behaviour.
