 Mandriva Linux Advisory                                   MDKA-2007:005
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : nmap
 Date    : January 11, 2007
 Affected: 2007.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 The version of nmap shipped with Mandriva Linux 2007 was built against
 the system copies of the libpcap and libdnet libraries. However, nmap
 actually requires changes to be made to these libraries which have not
 yet been made to the upstream versions, and consequently should be
 compiled against its own built-in copies of these libraries. This
 problem causes nmap not to work as the root user: it would simply
 freeze up. The updated package fixes this problem. It also fixes the
 menu entry for the package.
