The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200803-15
(phpMyAdmin: SQL injection vulnerability)
Richard Cunningham reported that phpMyAdmin uses the $_REQUEST variable
of $_GET and $_POST as a source for its parameters.
An attacker could entice a user to visit a malicious web application
that sets an 'sql_query' cookie and is hosted on the same domain as
phpMyAdmin, and thereby conduct SQL injection attacks with the
privileges of the user authenticating in phpMyAdmin afterwards.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All phpMyAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-db/phpmyadmin-2.11.5'
