MDKA-2006:044 : xinetd
High Nessus Plugin ID 24519
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe initscript for xinetd incorrectly set the locale to en_US. If the locales-en package is not installed on the system, some xinetd services may not work properly. This was first noted with the svnserve program from subversion.
This has been fixed in the updated packages, which set the locale to a generic value. Users not wishing to apply the update can work-around the problem by installing the locales-en package.
SolutionUpdate the affected package(s).
