The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-14
(ImageMagick: Multiple Vulnerabilities)
Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team discovered a stack and heap
buffer overflow in the GIMP XCF Image decoder and multiple heap and
integer overflows in the SUN bitmap decoder. Damian Put discovered a
heap overflow in the SGI image decoder.
An attacker may be able to create a specially crafted image that, when
processed with ImageMagick, executes arbitrary code with the privileges
of the executing user.
There is no known workaround at this time.
