The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200612-12
(F-PROT Antivirus: Multiple vulnerabilities)
F-Prot Antivirus version 4.6.7 fixes a heap-based buffer overflow, an
infinite loop, and other unspecified vulnerabilities.
Among other weaker impacts, a remote attacker could send an e-mail
containing a malicious file that would trigger the buffer overflow
vulnerability and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running F-Prot, which may be the root user.
There is no known workaround at this time.
