MDKA-2005:059: digikam

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the digikam package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:059 (digikam).

The printing functionality of DigiKam in Mandriva 2006 is flawed in
that when trying to print a picture, regardless of the size, it swaps
near infinitely and takes an extremely long time until the photo comes
out. As well, the photo may not come out because GhostScript fails
due to lack of memory.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
