The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-01
(libgda: Format string vulnerabilities)
Steve Kemp discovered two format string vulnerabilities in the
gda_log_error and gda_log_message functions. Some applications may pass
untrusted input to those functions and be vulnerable.
An attacker could pass malicious input to an application making
use of the vulnerable libgda functions, potentially resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code with the rights of that application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
