The remote host is missing an update as announced via advisory SSA:2006-129-02.
New mysql packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and -current to fix security issues. The MySQL package shipped with Slackware 10.2 may possibly leak sensitive information found in uninitialized memory to authenticated users. The MySQL package previously in Slackware -current also suffered from these flaws, but an additional overflow could allow arbitrary code execution. Since the vulnerabilities require a valid login and/or access to the database server, the risk is moderate. Slackware does not provide network access to a MySQL database by default. More details about the issues may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database. Issues that affect both Slackware 10.2 and -current: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-1516 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-1517 An issue affecting only Slackware -current: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-1518
