MDKA-2006:065 : hal

High Nessus Plugin ID 24536


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


A bug in partition detection for some SD/MMC card readers (those using the sdhci driver) was preventing correct detection by HAL, breaking automatic mounting/unmounting on card insertion/removal.
Another bug was preventing correct mounting of LUKS-encrypted removable media. This update fixes these bugs and also provides compatibility with D-Bus 1.0.


Update the affected package(s).
