The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-06
(nfs-utils: Access restriction bypass)
Michele Marcionelli reported that nfs-utils invokes the hosts_ctl()
function with the wrong order of arguments, which causes TCP Wrappers
to ignore netgroups.
A remote attacker could bypass intended access restrictions, i.e. NFS
netgroups, and gain access to restricted services.
There is no known workaround at this time.
