MDKA-2005:053 : drakxtools
High Nessus Plugin ID 24479
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionA number of bugs have been fixed in this new drakxtools package, primarily within the drakconnect and XFdrake programs:
The package requires perl-suid for fileshareset and filesharelist.
Drakconnect fixes include:
- don't duplicate variables (MTU, NETMASK, IPADDR) in ifcfg files - don't let interfaces with unknown drivers be configured - set hostname only after packages have been installed, thus preventing a potential failure in the graphical urpmi - workaround to have device-independent configuration files in wireless.d - workaround missing 'device' link in sysfs for rt2400/rt2500 - fix zd1201 device detection
Net_applet fixes include:
- use disconnected icon if no route, even if wifi is associated
XFdrake fixes include:
- handle nvidia_legacy - prevent x11 segfaulting with nvidia driver (loading both Xorg's glx and nvidia's glx) - prevent GL applications from segfaulting when using the nv driver while nvidia packages are being installed
SolutionUpdate the affected package(s).
