MDKA-2006:044 : xinetd

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 initscript for xinetd incorrectly set the locale to en_US. If the
locales-en package is not installed on the system, some xinetd
services may not work properly. This was first noted with the
svnserve program from subversion.

This has been fixed in the updated packages, which set the locale to
a generic value. Users not wishing to apply the update can
work-around the problem by installing the locales-en package.
