The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200407-18
(mod_ssl: Format string vulnerability)
A bug in ssl_engine_ext.c makes mod_ssl vulnerable to a ssl_log() related
format string vulnerability in the mod_proxy hook functions.
Given the right server configuration, an attacker could execute code as the
user running Apache, usually 'apache'.
A server should not be vulnerable if it is not using both mod_ssl and
mod_proxy. Otherwise there is no workaround other than to disable mod_ssl.

All mod_ssl users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv '>=net-www/mod_ssl-2.8.19'
# emerge '>=net-www/mod_ssl-2.8.19'
