Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2005-435: ncpfs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ncpfs package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-435 (ncpfs).

Ncpfs is a filesystem which understands the Novell NetWare(TM) NCP
protocol. Functionally, NCP is used for NetWare the way NFS is used
in the TCP/IP world. For a Linux system to mount a NetWare
filesystem, it needs a special mount program. The ncpfs package
contains such a mount program plus other tools for configuring and
using the ncpfs filesystem.

Install the ncpfs package if you need to use the ncpfs filesystem
to use Novell NetWare files or services.
