The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
Metamail is a set of utilities for processing MIME mail. New metamail
packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, and -current.
These fix two format string bugs and two buffer overflows which could
lead to unauthorized code execution. Thanks to Ulf Hä
discovering these problems and providing a patch.
