The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200506-04
(Wordpress: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Due to a lack of input validation, WordPress is vulnerable to SQL
injection and XSS attacks.
An attacker could use the SQL injection vulnerabilities to gain
information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting
issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious
script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials,
potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
