The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New mysql packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2
and -current to fix security issues. The MySQL packages shipped with
Slackware 9.1, 10.0, and 10.1 may possibly leak sensitive information
found in uninitialized memory to authenticated users. This is fixed in
the new packages, and was already patched in Slackware 10.2 and
-current. 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.
