The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
CVS is a client/server version control system. As a server, it is
used to host source code repositories. As a client, it is used to
access such repositories. This advisory affects both uses of CVS. A
security problem which could allow a server to create arbitrary files
on a client machine, and another security problem which may allow a
client to view files outside of the CVS repository have been fixed
with the release of cvs-1.11.15. Any sites running CVS should upgrade
to the new CVS package.
