The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-01
(Snort: Remote execution of arbitrary code)
The Snort DCE/RPC preprocessor does not properly reassemble certain
types of fragmented SMB and DCE/RPC packets.
A remote attacker could send specially crafted fragmented SMB or
DCE/RPC packets, without the need to finish the TCP handshake, that
would trigger a stack-based buffer overflow while being reassembled.
This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions
of the user running the Snort preprocessor.
Disable the DCE/RPC processor by commenting the 'preprocessor dcerpc'
section in /etc/snort/snort.conf .
