The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory RHSA-2009:0018. The xterm program is a terminal emulator for the X Window System. A flaw was found in the xterm handling of Device Control Request Status String (DECRQSS) escape sequences. An attacker could create a malicious text file (or log entry, if unfiltered) that could run arbitrary commands if read by a victim inside an xterm window. (CVE-2008-2383) All xterm users are advised to upgrade to the updated package, which contains a backported patch to resolve this issue. All running instances of xterm must be restarted for the update to take effect.
