Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2006:046: bootsplash

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the bootsplash package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:046 (bootsplash).

When multiple profiles are configured, they can be choosen in the
bootloader with the PROFILE keyword, but this needs a dedicated entry
or to append manually the profile at each boot. To ease the choice of
the profile during the boot time, Mandriva developed a frame buffer
menu in GTK to choose the profile.
Unfortunately in 2007, a miscompilation removed this application from
the bootsplash package, thus the only left method to choose a profile
was the bootloader one. This new package of bootsplash brings back the
'fbmenu' command which display the appropriate profile selection menu
during boot.
