Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200806-05
(cbrPager: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)

Mamoru Tasaka discovered that filenames of the image archives are not
properly sanitized before being passed to decompression utilities like
unrar and unzip, which use the system() libc library call.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open an archive with a
specially crafted filename, resulting in arbitrary code execution with
the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
