MDKA-2007:122 : printerdrake

High Nessus Plugin ID 37350


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


In Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring, printerdrake would not detect many network printers, due to defaulting to using a less comprehensive printer scan method than previous releases did. (bug 30090)

When changing the protocol for a configured network printer, printerdrake released with Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring would not update the associated protocol port number, leaving it in a non-working state. Also, general reconfiguration of network printers would fail, due to the use of an incorrect command. (bug 29524)

This update fixes these issues.


Update the affected package(s).
