Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2007:007: lirc

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the lirc package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2007:007 (lirc).

Dkms-lirc permits one to install LIRC drivers on non-Mandriva kernels.
It contains a driver named lirc_parallel.ko which does not work on
SMP-enabled kernels, preventing the driver installation on such
kernels. The lirc_parallel.ko driver has been removed from the updated
package and moved to a separate package named dkms-lirc-parallel.
