MDKA-2007:007: lirc Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the lirc package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2007:007 (lirc).

Dkms-lirc allows one to install LIRC drivers on non-Mandriva kernels.
It contains a driver named lirc_parallel.ko which does not work on
SMP-enabled kernels, preventing the driver installation on such
kernels. The lirc_parallel.ko driver has been removed from the updated
package and moved to a separate package named dkms-lirc-parallel.
