The remote host is missing an update to libxslt announced via advisory DSA 1624-1.
Chris Evans discovered that a buffer overflow in the RC4 functions of libexslt may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.19-3. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your libxslt packages.
