MDKA-2006:002 : mdkonline

High Nessus Plugin ID 24490


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


A bug in the mdkupdate cron job (when automatic update mode is enabled) prevents $ENV{USER} from being defined, which kills mdkupdate before performing the updates.

The mdkapplet GUI is now refreshed and doesn't stall anymore when waiting for configuration or installation operations to finish prior to re-drawing itself.


Update the affected package(s).
