Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2005:060: msec

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the msec package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:060 (msec).

Bugs in the msec package have been corrected:
msec wasn't properly parsing the output on security checks to check
ownership of files, reporting files as unowned when they were in fact
properly owned by a valid user.
The /var/lib/msec/security.conf was no longer being generated which
prevented msec from running.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
