The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200907-07
(ModPlug: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in ModPlug:
dummy reported an integer overflow in the CSoundFile::ReadMed()
function when processing a MED file with a crafted song comment or song
name, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-1438).
Manfred Tremmel and Stanislav Brabec reported a buffer overflow in the
PATinst() function when processing a long instrument name
The GStreamer Bad plug-ins (gst-plugins-bad) before 0.10.11 built a
vulnerable copy of ModPlug.
A remote attacker could entice a user to read specially crafted files,
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.

All ModPlug users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libmodplug-0.8.7'
gst-plugins-bad 0.10.11 and later versions do not include the ModPlug
plug-in (it has been moved to media-plugins/gst-plugins-modplug). All
gst-plugins-bad users should upgrade to the latest version and install
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/gst-plugins-bad-0.10.11'
# emerge --ask --verbose 'media-plugins/gst-plugins-modplug'
