MDKSA-2004:123: perl-MIME-tools Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the perl-MIME-tools package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:123 (perl-MIME-tools).

There's a bug in MIME-tools, where it mis-parses things like boundary=''. Some
viruses use an empty boundary, which may allow unapproved parts through

The updated packages are patched to fix this problem.

MIME::Base64 is integrated in the perl package on Mandakelinux, these updates
now provide the newer version.
