MDKA-2007:065 : mgetty

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 /usr/bin/faxspool script in the mgetty-sendfax package, which can
be used to convert files of various types into a format suitable for
faxing, attempted to use the 'giftoppm' program to convert .gif
files. This is a very old program which does not exist in Mandriva
Linux. This update corrects the script to call the 'giftopnm' program
instead; this is a more recent program of the same type that exists
in Mandriva Linux. This will allow the script to convert .gif images
