The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-28
(Sun Java: Web Start argument injection vulnerability)
Jouko Pynnonen discovered that Java Web Start contains a vulnerability
in the way it handles property tags in JNLP files.
By enticing a user to open a malicious JNLP file, a remote attacker
could pass command line arguments to the Java Virtual machine, which
can be used to bypass the Java 'sandbox' and to execute arbitrary code
with the permissions of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
