The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201401-02
(Gajim: Information disclosure)
The _ssl_verify_callback() function in tls_nb.py does not properly
validate SSL certificates, causing any certificate to be accepted as
valid as long as the root CA is valid.
A remote attacker might employ a specially crafted certificate to
conduct man-in-the-middle attacks on SSL connections and potentially
disclose sensitive information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
