The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-01
(gtkdiskfree: Insecure temporary file creation)
Eric Romang discovered that gtkdiskfree insecurely creates a
predictable temporary file to handle command output.
A local attacker could create a symbolic link in the temporary
files directory, pointing to a valid file somewhere on the filesystem.
When gtkdiskfree is executed, this would result in the file being
overwritten with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All gtkdiskfree users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-admin/gtkdiskfree-1.9.3-r1'
