MDKA-2006:014 : dynamic
High Nessus Plugin ID 24498
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionDynamic was not calling scripts correctly when hardware was plugged/unplugged. Plugging a digital camera (not usb mass storage, like a Canon camera) was not creating an icon on Desktop (for GNOME) or in the Devices window (for KDE).
Dynamic was also creating a 'pilot' symlink in / (in addition to /dev/pilot) when a Palm was connected, and this file was not removed when the Palm was unplugged. Now, this file is not longer created. If the symlink is already on the user's system, it can safely be removed manually.
Updated packages have been patched to correct the issue.
SolutionUpdate the affected package(s).
