The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200606-17
(OpenLDAP: Buffer overflow)
slurpd contains a buffer overflow when reading very long hostnames from
the status file.
By injecting an overly long hostname in the status file, an attacker
could possibly cause the execution of arbitrary code with the
permissions of the user running slurpd.
There is no known workaround at this time.
