The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200609-15
(GnuTLS: RSA Signature Forgery)
verify.c fails to properly handle excess data in
digestAlgorithm.parameters field while generating a hash when using an
RSA key with exponent 3. RSA keys that use exponent 3 are commonplace.
Remote attackers could forge PKCS #1 v1.5 signatures that are signed
with an RSA key, preventing GnuTLS from correctly verifying X.509 and
other certificates that use PKCS.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --update --ask --verbose '>=net-libs/gnutls-1.4.4'
