The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200904-15
(mpg123: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
The vendor reported a signedness error in the store_id3_text() function
in id3.c, allowing for out-of-bounds memory access.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open an MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3
(MP3) file containing a specially crafted ID3 tag, possibly resulting
in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
