The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200612-01
(wv library: Multiple integer overflows)
The wv library fails to do proper arithmetic checks in multiple places,
possibly leading to integer overflows.
An attacker could craft a malicious file that, when handled with the wv
library, could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the
permissions of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
