-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ 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. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22559 _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2007.0: 519efd6ded4f5b1d0c94a1bf3fc40a5d 2007.0/i586/nmap-4.11-2.1mdv2007.0.i586.rpm 295c5340d13334c278936c6dbb063ad4 2007.0/i586/nmap-frontend-4.11-2.1mdv2007.0.i586.rpm 51c740bee5eaac3231f2706138b68220 2007.0/SRPMS/nmap-4.11-2.1mdv2007.0.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2007.0/X86_64: 7cc200adb7e54af83c70793b56367f44 2007.0/x86_64/nmap-4.11-2.1mdv2007.0.x86_64.rpm 515db9f1112008580e09bfe2d9d48902 2007.0/x86_64/nmap-frontend-4.11-2.1mdv2007.0.x86_64.rpm 51c740bee5eaac3231f2706138b68220 2007.0/SRPMS/nmap-4.11-2.1mdv2007.0.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
