The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200802-12
(xine-lib: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Damian Frizza and Alfredo Ortega (Core Security Technologies)
discovered a stack-based buffer overflow within the open_flac_file()
function in the file demux_flac.c when parsing tags within a FLAC file
(CVE-2008-0486). A buffer overflow when parsing ASF headers, which is
similar to CVE-2006-1664, has also been discovered (CVE-2008-1110).
A remote attacker could entice a user to play specially crafted FLAC or
ASF video streams with a player using xine-lib, potentially resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the player.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All xine-lib users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/xine-lib-188.8.131.52'
