The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200509-02
(Gnumeric: Heap overflow in the included PCRE library)
Gnumeric contains a private copy of libpcre which is subject to an
integer overflow leading to a heap overflow (see GLSA 200508-17).
An attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability by
tricking a user into opening a specially crafted spreadsheet, which
could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running Gnumeric.
There is no known workaround at this time.
