Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the hal package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2006:003 (hal).
HAL in Mandriva 2006 doesn't correctly handle card readers advertising
themselves as SCSI removable disk, which was preventing HAL from correctly
creating entries in fstab when the user inserts a memory card.
Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
