The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-09
(ImageMagick: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Two vulnerabilities have been found in ImageMagick:
Incorrect offset and count values in the ResolutionUnit tag in EXIF
IFD could cause memory corruption (CVE-2012-0247).
IOP tag offsets pointing to the beginning of an IFD could cause an
infinite loop of ImageMagick parsing the IFD structure (CVE-2012-0248).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image,
possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service
There is no known workaround at this time.
