MDKA-2005:060: msec Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the msec package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:060 (msec).
Bugs in the msec package have been corrected:
msec wasn't properly parsing the output on security checks to check
ownership of files, reporting files as unowned when they were in fact
properly owned by a valid user.
The /var/lib/msec/security.conf was no longer being generated which
prevented msec from running.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
