Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

Upgraded OpenSSH 3.7.1p1 packages are available for Slackware 8.1,
9.0 and -current. These fix additional buffer management errors that
were not corrected in the recent 3.7p1 release. The possibility exists
that these errors could allow a remote exploit, so we recommend all
sites running OpenSSH upgrade to the new OpenSSH package immediately.
