Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2005:047: apcupsd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the apcupsd package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:047 (apcupsd).

The apcupsd package as shipped with Mandriva Linux 2006 was missing the
main apcupsd configuration file. As a result, those upgrading from
earlier versions would have their existing configuration file moved to
/etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf.rpmsave with no new configuration file to
replace it, which would prevent the service from starting.
The new packages provide the configuration file. Users affected by
this will manually need to move back the .rpmsave configuration file,
however.
