MDKSA-2002:078: ypserv Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the ypserv package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:078 (ypserv).

A memory leak that could be triggered remotely was discovered in ypserv 2.5 and
earlier. This could lead to a Denial of Service as repeated requests for a
non-existant map will result in ypserv consuming more and more memory, and also
running more slowly. If the system runs out of available memory, ypserv would
also be killed.
