The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200708-08
(SquirrelMail G/PGP plugin: Arbitrary code execution)
The functions deletekey(), gpg_check_sign_pgp_mime() and gpg_recv_key()
used in the SquirrelMail G/PGP encryption plugin do not properly escape
An authenticated user could use the plugin to execute arbitrary code on
the server, or a remote attacker could send a specially crafted e-mail
to a SquirrelMail user, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the underlying web server.
Note that the G/PGP plugin is disabled by default.
Enter the SquirrelMail configuration directory
(/usr/share/webapps/squirrelmail/version/htdocs/config), then execute
the conf.pl script. Select the plugins menu, then select the gpg plugin
item number in the 'Installed Plugins' list to disable it. Press S to
save your changes, then Q to quit.
