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.
See also :
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.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 8.5
