The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201309-21
(klibc: Command Injection)
The ipconfig utility in klibc writes DHCP options to
/tmp/net-$DEVICE.conf, and this file is later sourced by other scripts to
get defined variables. The options written to this file are not properly
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted DHCP reply, which could
execute arbitrary shell code with the privileges of any process which
sources DHCP options.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All klibc users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
