The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:066 (grip).
A buffer overflow bug was found by Dean Brettle in the way that grip handles
data returned by CDDB servers. If a user connected to a malicious CDDB server,
a possible hacker could execute arbitrary code on the user's machine.
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
