Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2005:062: libgphoto

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libgphoto package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:062 (libgphoto).

The hotplug usermap has been restored for this package because it is
used by HAL to correctly detect digital cameras which are not using
USB Mass storage (for instance, all Canon digital cameras, as well
as some Nikon ones and all PTP cameras). This should permit
gnome-volume-manager to automatically popup a 'Do you want to
import photos?' dialog when the camera is plugged in.
