Slackware 10.0 / 10.1 / 10.2 / 11.0 / 8.1 / 9.0 / 9.1 / current : file [and bin package] (SSA:2007-093-01)

Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New file packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0,
10.1, 10.2, 11.0, and -current to fix a security issue. NOTE: In
Slackware 11.0 and earlier, the file utility was part of the required
'bin' package, so this patch is needed even if your machine does not
have a 'file' package installed (which, if you're not running
Slackware -current, it probably does not).
