The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-44
(ncpfs: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Erik Sjolund discovered two vulnerabilities in the programs
bundled with ncpfs: there is a potentially exploitable buffer overflow
in ncplogin (CAN-2005-0014), and due to a flaw in nwclient.c, utilities
using the NetWare client functions insecurely access files with
elevated privileges (CAN-2005-0013).
The buffer overflow might allow a malicious remote NetWare server
to execute arbitrary code on the NetWare client. Furthermore, a local
attacker may be able to create links and access files with elevated
privileges using SUID ncpfs utilities.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All ncpfs users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
