The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200707-01
(Firebird: Buffer overflow)
Cody Pierce from TippingPoint DVLabs has discovered a buffer overflow
when processing 'connect' requests with an overly large 'p_cnct_count'
An unauthenticated remote attacker could send a specially crafted
request to a vulnerable server, possibly resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firebird.
There is no known workaround at this time.
