MDKA-2006:045 : coreutils

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 coreutils package lacked several features due to a build
deficiency. As a result, the su program was not linked against the
PAM library, making it impossible for su to make use of advanced
authentication features that rely on the PAM library. As well, the cp
system utility did not keep extended attributes and ACLs in file
copies.

This has been corrected in the updated packages.
