The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200902-01
(sudo: Privilege escalation)
Harald Koenig discovered that sudo incorrectly handles group
specifications in Runas_Alias (and related) entries when a group is
specified in the list (using %group syntax, to allow a user to run
commands as any member of that group) and the user is already a member
of that group.
A local attacker could possibly run commands as an arbitrary system
user (including root).
There is no known workaround at this time.
