MDKA-2007:005 : nmap

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of nmap shipped with Mandriva Linux 2007 was built
against the system copies of the libpcap and libdnet libraries.
However, nmap actually requires changes to be made to these libraries
which have not yet been made to the upstream versions, and
consequently should be compiled against its own built-in copies of
these libraries. This problem causes nmap not to work as the root
user: it would simply freeze up. The updated package fixes this
problem. It also fixes the menu entry for the package.
