The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New xorg and xorg-devel packages are available for Slackware 10.1,
10.2, and -current to fix a security issue. A typo in the X render
extension in X.Org 6.8.0 or later allows an X client to crash the
server and possibly to execute arbitrary code as the X server user
(typically this is 'root'.)

Update the affected x11 and / or x11-devel packages.
