Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New curl packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and -current, and new wget packages are available for Slackware 8.1,
9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and -current. These address a buffer
overflow in NTLM handling which may present a security problem, though
no public exploits are known at this time.
