Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : iptables (MDKSA-2004:125)

High Nessus Plugin ID 15636


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Faheem Mitha discovered that the iptables tool would not always load the required modules on its own as it should have, which could in turn lead to firewall rules not being loaded on system startup in some cases.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.


Update the affected iptables, iptables-devel and / or iptables-ipv6 packages.
