The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200801-01
(unp: Arbitrary command execution)
Erich Schubert from Debian discovered that unp does not escape file
names properly before passing them to calls of the shell.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to unpack a
compressed archive with a specially crafted file name, leading to the
execution of shell commands from within the filename. That code will be
executed with the privileges of the user running unp.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All unp users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-arch/unp-1.0.14'
