MDKA-2006:065: hal Vulnerability Scan
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-2006:065 (hal).
A bug in partition detection for some SD/MMC card readers (those using
the sdhci driver) was preventing correct detection by HAL, breaking
automatic mounting/unmounting on card insertion/removal. Another bug
was preventing correct mounting of LUKS-encrypted removable media. This
update fixes these bugs and also provides compatibility with D-Bus 1.0.
