Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated timezone packages are being provided for older Mandriva Linux
systems that do not contain the new Daylight Savings Time information
for 2007 for certain time zones. These updated packages contain the
new information.


This update addresses timezone files such as Canada/Mountain that had
not been previously updated to the DST information. While files such
as MST7MDT were updated, the counterpart files such as
Canada/Mountain or America/Edmonton, etc. were not. This update
addresses that and also ensures that the new timezone information is
copied over /etc/localtime so no further configuration is required.
