MDKA-2007:065 : mgetty

High Nessus Plugin ID 25595


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


The /usr/bin/faxspool script in the mgetty-sendfax package, which can be used to convert files of various types into a format suitable for faxing, attempted to use the 'giftoppm' program to convert .gif files. This is a very old program which does not exist in Mandriva Linux. This update corrects the script to call the 'giftopnm' program instead; this is a more recent program of the same type that exists in Mandriva Linux. This will allow the script to convert .gif images correctly.


Update the affected package(s).
