The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200802-06
(scponly: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Joachim Breitner reported that Subversion and rsync support invokes
subcommands in an insecure manner (CVE-2007-6350). It has also been
discovered that scponly does not filter the -o and -F options to the
scp executable (CVE-2007-6415).
A local attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to elevate
privileges and execute arbitrary commands on the vulnerable host.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All scponly users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/scponly-4.8'
Due to the design of scponly's Subversion support, security
restrictions can still be circumvented. Please read carefully the
SECURITY file included in the package.
