The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
CVS is a client/server version control system. As a server, it is
used to host source code repositories. As a client, it is used to
access such repositories. This advisory deals with the use of CVS as a
server. A security problem which could allow an attacker to create
directories and possibly files outside of the CVS repository has been
fixed with the release of cvs-1.11.10. Any sites running a CVS server
should upgrade to the new CVS package.
