MDKA-2006:045 : coreutils
High Nessus Plugin ID 24520
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe coreutils package lacked several features due to a build deficiency. As a result, the su program was not linked against the PAM library, making it impossible for su to make use of advanced authentication features that rely on the PAM library. As well, the cp system utility did not keep extended attributes and ACLs in file copies.
This has been corrected in the updated packages.
SolutionUpdate the affected package(s).
