The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-03
(OpenAFS: Privilege escalation)
Benjamin Bennett discovered that the OpenAFS client contains a design
flaw where cache managers do not use authenticated server connections
when performing actions not requested by a user.
If setuid is enabled on the client cells, an attacker can supply a fake
FetchStatus reply that sets setuid and root ownership of a file being
executed. This could provide root access on the client. Remote attacks
may be possible if an attacker can entice a user to execute a known
file. Note that setuid is enabled by default in versions of OpenAFS
prior to 1.4.4.
Disable the setuid functionality on all client cells. This is now the
default configuration in OpenAFS.
