The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and
12.0 to fix security issues. Note that Firefox 1.5.x has reached its
EOL (end of life) and is no longer being updated by mozilla.com. Users
of Firefox 1.5.x are encouraged to upgrade to Firefox 2.x. Since we
use the official Firefox binaries, these packages should work equally
well on earlier Slackware systems.
