The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200606-11
(JPEG library: Denial of Service)
Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Auditing Team discovered that the
vulnerable JPEG library ebuilds compile JPEG without the --maxmem
feature which is not recommended.
By enticing a user to load a specially crafted JPEG image file an
attacker could cause a Denial of Service, due to memory exhaustion.
There is no known workaround at this time.
