The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201404-07
(OpenSSL: Information Disclosure)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSL:
OpenSSL incorrectly handles memory in the TLS heartbeat extension,
leading to information disclosure of 64kb per request, possibly
including private keys (&ldquo
, OpenSSL 1.0.1 only,
The Montgomery ladder implementation of OpenSSL improperly handles
swap operations (CVE-2014-0076).
A remote attacker could exploit these issues to disclose information,
including private keys or other sensitive information, or perform
side-channel attacks to obtain ECDSA nonces.
Disabling the tls-heartbeat USE flag (enabled by default) provides a
workaround for the CVE-2014-0160 issue.

All OpenSSL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1g'
Note: All services using OpenSSL to provide TLS connections have to be
restarted for the update to take effect. Utilities like
app-admin/lib_users can aid in identifying programs using OpenSSL.
As private keys may have been compromised using the Heartbleed attack,
it is recommended to regenerate them.
