The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New X.Org server packages are available for Slackware 10.0, 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix a security issue. An integer overflow in the
pixmap handling code may allow the execution of arbitrary code through
a specially crafted pixmap. Slackware 10.2 was patched against this
vulnerability before its release, but new server packages are being
issued for Slackware 10.2 and -current using an improved patch, as
there were some bug reports using certain programs.
