The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200504-27
(xine-lib: Two heap overflow vulnerabilities)
Heap overflows have been found in the code handling RealMedia RTSP
and Microsoft Media Services streams over TCP (MMST).
By setting up a malicious server and enticing a user to use its
streaming data, a remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code
on the client computer with the permissions of the user running any
multimedia frontend making use of the xine-lib library.
There is no known workaround at this time.
