The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New udev packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1,
12.2, and -current to fix security issues. The udev packages in
Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current contained a local
root hole vulnerability:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1185 The udev
packages in Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current had an integer
overflow which could result in a denial of service:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1186 Note that
udev is only used with 2.6 kernels, which are not used by default with
Slackware 10.2 and 11.0.
