The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
An integer overflow in the xdrmem_getbytes() function found in the
glibc library has been fixed. This could allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code by exploiting RPC service that use

Slackware appear to use this function, but third-party applications
may make use of it. We recommend upgrading to these new glibc
