The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200909-02
(libvorbis: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Lucas Adamski reported that libvorbis does not correctly process file
headers, related to static mode headers and encoding books.
A remote attacker could entice a user to play a specially crafted OGG
Vorbis file using an application that uses libvorbis, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application, or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libvorbis-1.2.3'
