The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-03
(Uim: Privilege escalation vulnerability)
Masanari Yamamoto discovered that Uim uses environment variables
incorrectly. This bug causes a privilege escalation if setuid/setgid
applications are linked to libuim. This bug only affects
immodule-enabled Qt (if you build Qt 3.3.2 or later versions with
USE='immqt' or USE='immqt-bc').
A malicious local user could exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary code with escalated privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
