The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200705-02
(FreeType: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Greg MacManus of iDefense Labs has discovered an integer overflow in
the function bdfReadCharacters() when parsing BDF fonts.
A remote attacker could entice a user to use a specially crafted BDF
font, possibly resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow and the remote
execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
