The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200409-10
(multi-gnome-terminal: Information leak)
multi-gnome-terminal contains debugging code that has been known to output
active keystrokes to a potentially unsafe location. Output has been seen to
show up in the '.xsession-errors' file in the user's home directory. Since
this file is world-readable on many machines, this bug has the potential to
leak sensitive information to anyone using the system.
Any authorized user on the local machine has the ability to read any
critical data that has been entered into the terminal, including passwords.
There is no known workaround at this time.
