The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New tcpdump packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0,
10.1, and -current to fix a security issue. A specially crafted BGP
packet can cause tcpdump to go into an infinite loop, creating a
denial of service where network monitoring is disabled.
