MDKA-2005:047 : apcupsd

High Nessus Plugin ID 24473


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


The apcupsd package as shipped with Mandriva Linux 2006 was missing the main apcupsd configuration file. As a result, those upgrading from earlier versions would have their existing configuration file moved to /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf.rpmsave with no new configuration file to replace it, which would prevent the service from starting.

The new packages provide the configuration file. Users affected by this will manually need to move back the .rpmsave configuration file, however.


Update the affected package(s).
