The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
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).
