The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New mysql packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and -current to
fix security issues. The MySQL package shipped with Slackware 10.2 may
possibly leak sensitive information found in uninitialized memory to
authenticated users. The MySQL package previously in Slackware
-current also suffered from these flaws, but an additional overflow
could allow arbitrary code execution. Since the vulnerabilities
require a valid login and/or access to the database server, the risk
is moderate. Slackware does not provide network access to a MySQL
database by default.
