The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-18
(JasPer: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Marc Espie and Christian Weisgerber have discovered multiple
vulnerabilities in JasPer:
Multiple integer overflows might allow for insufficient memory
allocation, leading to heap-based buffer overflows (CVE-2008-3520).
The jas_stream_printf() function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c uses
vsprintf() to write user-provided data to a static to a buffer, leading
to an overflow (CVE-2008-3522).
Remote attackers could entice a user or automated system to process
specially crafted jpeg2k files with an application using JasPer,
possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All JasPer users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/jasper-1.900.1-r3'
