The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200509-09
(Py2Play: Remote execution of arbitrary Python code)
Arc Riley discovered that Py2Play uses Python pickles to send objects
over a peer-to-peer game network, and that clients accept without
restriction the objects and code sent by peers.
A remote attacker participating in a Py2Play-powered game can send
malicious Python pickles, resulting in the execution of arbitrary
Python code on the targeted game client.
There is no known workaround at this time.
