The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
GDM is the GNOME Display Manager, and is commonly used to provide a
graphical login for local users. Upgraded gdm packages are available
for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, and -current. These fix two vulnerabilities
which could allow a local user to crash or freeze gdm, preventing
access to the machine until a reboot. Sites using gdm should upgrade,
especially sites such as computer labs that use gdm to provide public
or semi-public access.
