Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2006:022: module-init-tools

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the module-init-tools package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:022 (module-init-tools).

The default configuration of module-init-tools was to send a HUP signal
to the CUPS daemon whenever the 'usblp' kernel module is loaded, for
example when a USB printer is plugged in. Due to udev also sending a HUP
signal to the CUPS daemon on pluggin in a USB printer there were two
HUPs one shortly after the other which often makes the CUPS daemon
crashing.
The updated module-init-tools package removes the usblp call
responsible for this bad behaviour.
