The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200506-13
(webapp-config: Insecure temporary file handling)
Eric Romang discovered webapp-config uses a predictable temporary
filename while processing certain options, resulting in a race
Successful exploitation of the race condition would allow an attacker
to disrupt the operation of webapp-config, or execute arbitrary shell
commands with the privileges of the user running webapp-config. A local
attacker could use a symlink attack to create or overwrite files with
the permissions of the user running webapp-config.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-admin/webapp-config-1.11'
