MDKSA-2004:125: iptables

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the iptables package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:125 (iptables).

Faheem Mitha discovered that the iptables tool would not always load the
required modules on its own as it should have, which could in turn lead to
firewall rules not being loaded on system startup in some cases.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
