The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-03
(imlib: Buffer overflows in image decoding)
Pavel Kankovsky discovered that several overflows found in the
libXpm library (see GLSA 200409-34) also applied to imlib. He also
fixed a number of other potential flaws.
A remote attacker could entice a user to view a carefully-crafted
image file, which would potentially lead to execution of arbitrary code
with the rights of the user viewing the image. This affects any program
that makes use of the imlib library.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All imlib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/imlib-1.9.14-r3'
