The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200507-15
(PHP: Script injection through XML-RPC)
James Bercegay has discovered that the XML-RPC implementation in
PHP fails to sanitize input passed in an XML document, which is used in
an 'eval()' statement.
A remote attacker could exploit the XML-RPC vulnerability to
execute arbitrary PHP script code by sending specially crafted XML data
to applications making use of this XML-RPC implementation.
There is no known workaround at this time.
