The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200405-25
(tla: Multiple vulnerabilities in included libneon)
Multiple format string vulnerabilities and a heap overflow vulnerability
were discovered in the code of the neon library (GLSA 200405-01 and
200405-13). Current versions of the tla package include their own version
of this library.
When connected to a malicious WebDAV server, these vulnerabilities could
allow execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running tla.
There is no known workaround at this time.
