The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-25
(X.Org X server: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities have been found in the
ProcDbeGetVisualInfo() and the ProcDbeSwapBuffers() of the DBE
extension, and ProcRenderAddGlyphs() in the Render extension.
A local attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running the X server, typically root.
Disable the DBE extension by removing the 'Load dbe' directive in the
Module section of xorg.conf, and explicitly disable the Render
extension with ' Option 'RENDER' 'disable' ' in the Extensions section.
Note: This could affect the functionality of some applications.
