The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200908-07
(Perl Compress::Raw modules: Denial of Service)
Leo Bergolth reported an off-by-one error in the inflate() function in
Zlib.xs of Compress::Raw::Zlib, possibly leading to a heap-based buffer
Paul Marquess discovered a similar vulnerability in the bzinflate()
function in Bzip2.xs of Compress::Raw::Bzip2 (CVE-2009-1884).
A remote attacker might entice a user or automated system (for instance
running SpamAssassin or AMaViS) to process specially crafted files,
possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
