The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-09
(ncpfs: Buffer overflow in ncplogin and ncpmap)
Karol Wiesek discovered a buffer overflow in the handling of the
'-T' option in the ncplogin and ncpmap utilities, which are both
installed as SUID root by default.
A local attacker could trigger the buffer overflow by calling one
of these utilities with a carefully crafted command line, potentially
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with root privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
