The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200901-05
(Streamripper: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Stefan Cornelius from Secunia Research reported multiple buffer
overflows in the http_parse_sc_header(), http_get_pls() and
http_get_m3u() functions in lib/http.c when parsing overly long HTTP
headers, or pls and m3u playlists with overly long entries.
A remote attacker could entice a user to connect to a malicious server,
possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
