The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200711-33
(nss_ldap: Information disclosure)
Josh Burley reported that nss_ldap does not properly handle the LDAP
connections due to a race condition that can be triggered by
multi-threaded applications using nss_ldap, which might lead to
requested data being returned to a wrong process.
Remote attackers could exploit this race condition by sending queries
to a vulnerable server using nss_ldap, possibly leading to theft of
user credentials or information disclosure (e.g. Dovecot returning
wrong mailbox contents).
There is no known workaround at this time.

All nss_ldap users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=sys-auth/nss_ldap-258'
