MDKA-2006:022 : module-init-tools
High Nessus Plugin ID 24505
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe default configuration of module-init-tools was to send a HUP signal to the CUPS daemon whenever the 'usblp' kernel module is loaded, for example when a USB printer is plugged in. Due to udev also sending a HUP signal to the CUPS daemon on pluggin in a USB printer there were two HUPs one shortly after the other which often makes the CUPS daemon crashing.
The updated module-init-tools package removes the usblp call responsible for this bad behaviour.
SolutionUpdate the affected package(s).
