The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-09
(OpenSC: Insufficient protection of smart card PIN)
Chaskiel M Grundman reported that OpenSC uses weak permissions (ADMIN
file control information of 00) for the 5015 directory on smart cards
and USB crypto tokens running Siemens CardOS M4.
A physically proximate attacker can exploit this vulnerability to
change the PIN on a smart card and use it for authentication, leading
to privilege escalation.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All OpenSC users should upgrade to the latest version, and then check
and update their smart cards:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-libs/opensc-0.11.6'
# pkcs15-tool --test-update
# pkcs15-tool --test-update --update
