The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201706-01
(MUNGE: Privilege escalation)
It was discovered that Gentoo’s default MUNGE installation suffered
from a privilege escalation vulnerability (munge user to root) due to
improper permissions and a runscript which called chown() on a user
A local attacker, who either is already MUNGE’s system user or belongs
to MUNGE’s group, could potentially escalate privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All MUNGE users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=sys-auth/munge-0.5.10-r2'
