The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-16
(Aircrack-ng: Remote execution of arbitrary code)
Jonathan So reported that the airodump-ng module does not correctly
check the size of 802.11 authentication packets before copying them
into a buffer.
A remote attacker could trigger a stack-based buffer overflow by
sending a specially crafted 802.11 authentication packet to a user
running airodump-ng with the -w (--write) option. This could lead to
the remote execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user
running airodump-ng, which is typically the root user.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All Aircrack-ng users should upgrade to the latest version:
