The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-09
(Weex: Format string vulnerability)
Ulf Harnhammar discovered a format string bug in Weex that can be
triggered when it is first run (or when its cache files are rebuilt,
using the -r option).
An attacker could setup a malicious FTP server which, when
accessed using Weex, could trigger the format string bug and end up
executing arbitrary code with the rights of the user running Weex.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All Weex users should upgrade to the latest version:
