MDKA-2005:053: drakxtools Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the drakxtools package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:053 (drakxtools).

A number of bugs have been fixed in this new drakxtools package,
primarily within the drakconnect and XFdrake programs:
The package requires perl-suid for fileshareset and filesharelist.
Drakconnect fixes include:
- don't duplicate variables (MTU, NETMASK, IPADDR) in ifcfg files
- don't let interfaces with unknown drivers be configured
- set hostname only after packages have been installed, thus preventing
a potential failure in the graphical urpmi
- workaround to have device-independant configuration files in wireless.d
- workaround missing 'device' link in sysfs for rt2400/rt2500
- fix zd1201 device detection
Net_applet fixes include:
- use disconnected icon if no route, even if wifi is associated
XFdrake fixes include:
- handle nvidia_legacy
- prevent x11 segfaulting with nvidia driver (loading both Xorg's glx
and nvidia's glx)
- prevent GL applications from segfaulting when using the nv driver
while nvidia packages are being installed
