The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
The mutt mail client packages in Slackware 8.1 and 9.0 have been
upgraded to mutt-1.4.1i to fix a security problem discovered by Core
Security Technologies. This issue may allow a remote attacker
controlling a malicious IMAP server to execute code on your machine as
the user running mutt if you connect to the IMAP server using mutt.
All sites running mutt are advised to upgrade.
