Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New Amarok packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, and
-current to fix security issues. In addition, new supporting libgpod
packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and 12.0, since a newer
version of libgpod than shipped with these releases is required to run
Amarok version 1.4.10. The Magnatune music library plugin made
insecure use of the /tmp directory, allowing malicious local users to
overwrite files owned by the user running Amarok through symlink
attacks.
