Is the ledger board attached to the house correctly, or just screwed through the siding?

Looking at it from this side it had no j channel around the bottom. Looks like the siding was put on and this was just compressed against the siding?

Hard to tell 100% from the pic.

replace the old ledger board when doing the rest of the deck. install new ledger board correctly so water won't become an issue.
