The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200607-01
(mpg123: Heap overflow)
In httpdget.c, a variable is assigned to the heap, and is supposed to
receive a smaller allocation. As this variable was not terminated
properly, strncpy() will overwrite the data assigned next in memory.
By enticing a user to visit a malicious URL, an attacker could possibly
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running mpg123.
There is no known workaround at this time.
