The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-05
(Cyrus-SASL: Buffer overflow and SASL_PATH vulnerabilities)
Cyrus-SASL contains a remote buffer overflow in the digestmda5.c file.
Additionally, under certain conditions it is possible for a local user
to exploit a vulnerability in the way the SASL_PATH environment
variable is honored (CAN-2004-0884).
An attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code with the Effective
ID of the application calling the Cyrus-SASL libraries.
There is no known workaround at this time.
