The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200806-03
(Imlib 2: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Stefan Cornelius (Secunia Research) reported two boundary errors in
One of them within the load() function in the
file src/modules/loaders/loader_pnm.c when processing the header of a
PNM image file, possibly leading to a stack-based buffer overflow.
The second one within the load() function in the file
src/modules/loader_xpm.c when processing an XPM image file, possibly
leading to a stack-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PNM
or XPM image, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code
with the rights of the user running the application using Imlib 2.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All Imlib 2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/imlib2-1.4.0-r1'
