The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201209-07
(International Components for Unicode: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
An error in the _canonicalize() function in uloc.cpp could cause a
stack-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted locale
representation using an application linked against ICU, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
