Technical Details:
This update fixes several issues in draksnapshot: The draksnapshot applet received the following fixes: - on desktop startup, it will wait for 30s before checking for available disc so that notification is positioned at the right place, on the applet icon - it prevents crashing if DBus is not reachable, and reports DBus errors - it prevents crashing if DBus is active, but HAL is not (#44434) - if all discs are unmounted, the applet will hide (#41176) - it prevents running more than once - it uses HAL in order to detect discs available for backup, thus fixing detecting some internal SATA discs as discs available for backup (#41107) It also uses new icons from Mandriva Linux 2009.0. The draksnapshot configuration tool also received the following fixes: - it stops saving config when clicking Close (#39790) one has to click on Apply in order to save the config - on first run, it offers backup in mounted disc path, instead of defaulting to some place in the root filesystem which could previously be filled up (#39802) - it no longer offers to configure some obscure advanced options - it now allows for disabling backups - it generates anacron-friendly cron files Update: An updated draksnapshot is now available for Mandriva Linux 2009.0.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
