The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200905-02
(Cscope: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
James Peach of Apple discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in
cscope's handling of long file system paths (CVE-2009-0148). Multiple
stack-based buffer overflows were reported in the putstring function
when processing an overly long function name or symbol in a source code
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
source file, 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.
