The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200601-15
(Paros: Default administrator password)
Andrew Christensen discovered that in older versions of Paros the
database component HSQLDB is installed with an empty password for the
database administrator 'sa'.
Since the database listens globally by default, an attacker can
connect and issue arbitrary commands, including execution of binaries
installed on the host.
There is no known workaround at this time.
