The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200602-06
(ImageMagick: Format string vulnerability)
The SetImageInfo function was found vulnerable to a format string
mishandling. Daniel Kobras discovered that the handling of '%'-escaped
sequences in filenames passed to the function is inadequate. This is a
new vulnerability that is not addressed by GLSA 200503-11.
By feeding specially crafted file names to ImageMagick, an
attacker can crash the program and possibly execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running ImageMagick.
There is no known workaround at this time.
