The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201201-18
(bip: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in bip:
Uli Schlachter reported that bip does not properly handle invalid
data during authentication, resulting in a daemon crash
Julien Tinnes reported that bip does not check the number of open
file descriptors against FD_SETSIZE, resulting in a stack buffer
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the bip daemon, or
cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
