The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-30
(cmd5checkpw: Local password leak vulnerability)
Florian Westphal discovered that cmd5checkpw is installed setuid
cmd5checkpw but does not drop privileges before calling execvp(), so
the invoked program retains the cmd5checkpw euid.
Local users that know at least one valid /etc/poppasswd user/password
combination can read the /etc/poppasswd file.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All cmd5checkpw users should upgrade to the latest available version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-mail/cmd5checkpw-0.22-r2'
