MDKA-2007:083 : imap

High Nessus Plugin ID 25874


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


Due to the configuration of the xinetd configuration files included in the imap package, initial connections to the IMAP and/or POP3 services would have a substantial delay due to xinetd attempting to perform ident lookups.

This update has corrected xinetd configuration files that remove the ident lookup support, preventing such delays.


Update the affected package(s).
