The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-21
(Apache 2, mod_ssl: Bypass of SSLCipherSuite directive)
A flaw has been found in mod_ssl where the 'SSLCipherSuite' directive could
be bypassed in certain configurations if it is used in a directory or
location context to restrict the set of allowed cipher suites.
A remote attacker could gain access to a location using any cipher suite
allowed by the server/virtual host configuration, disregarding the
restrictions by 'SSLCipherSuite' for that location.
There is no known workaround at this time.
