The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-46
(ClamAV: Multiple issues)
ClamAV fails to properly scan ZIP files with special headers
(CAN-2005-0133) and base64 encoded images in URLs.
By sending a base64 encoded image file in a URL an attacker could evade
virus scanning. By sending a specially crafted ZIP file an attacker
could cause a Denial of Service by crashing the clamd daemon.
There is no known workaround at this time.
