MDKA-2006:053 : dbus

High Nessus Plugin ID 24528


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


On Mandriva Linux 2007.0, the path for D-Bus system bus socket was not following D-Bus specification. This could cause some implementation of the D-Bus specification to not detect the system bus correctly. This updated package ensures the location of the system bus is exported through DBUS_SYSTEM_BUS_ADDRESS, in compliance with D-Bus specification.


Update the affected package(s).
