The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-02
(PDFlib: Multiple overflows in the included TIFF library)
The TIFF library is subject to several known vulnerabilities (see
GLSA 200410-11). Most of these overflows also apply to PDFlib.
A remote attacker could entice a user or web application to
process a carefully crafted PDF file or TIFF image using a
PDFlib-powered program. This can potentially lead to the execution of
arbitrary code with the rights of the program processing the file.
There is no known workaround at this time.
