The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201402-05
(Banshee: Arbitrary code execution)
Banshee places a zero-length directory name in PATH, which allows
libraries to be loaded from the working directory.
A local attacker could put specially crafted library into working
directory of Banshee, 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.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-sound/banshee-1.8.0-r1'
