The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200604-10
(zgv, xzgv: Heap overflow)
Andrea Barisani of Gentoo Linux discovered xzgv and zgv allocate
insufficient memory when rendering images with more than 3 output
components, such as images using the YCCK or CMYK colour space. When
xzgv or zgv attempt to render the image, data from the image overruns a
heap allocated buffer.
An attacker may be able to construct a malicious image that executes
arbitrary code with the permissions of the xzgv or zgv user when
attempting to render the image.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All xzgv users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-gfx/xzgv-0.8-r2'
All zgv users should also upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-gfx/zgv-5.9'
