The remote host is missing an update as announced via advisory SSA:2006-155-01.
New mysql packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and -current to fix security issues. The MySQL packages shipped with Slackware 9.1, 10.0, and 10.1 may possibly leak sensitive information found in uninitialized memory to authenticated users. This is fixed in the new packages, and was already patched in Slackware 10.2 and -current. 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.
