Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2006:002: mdkonline

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mdkonline package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:002 (mdkonline).

A bug in the mdkupdate cron job (when automatic update mode is enabled)
prevents $ENV{USER} from being defined, which kills mdkupdate before
performing the updates.
The mdkapplet GUI is now refreshed and doesn't stall anymore when waiting
for configuration or installation operations to finish prior to
re-drawing itself.
