High Nessus Plugin ID 24491


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


HAL in Mandriva 2006 doesn't correctly handle card readers advertising themselves as SCSI removable disk, which was preventing HAL from correctly creating entries in fstab when the user inserts a memory card.
