This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200510-24
(Mantis: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Mantis contains several vulnerabilities, including:
a remote file inclusion vulnerability
a SQL injection vulnerability
multiple cross site scripting vulnerabilities
multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities

Impact :

An attacker could exploit the remote file inclusion vulnerability to
execute arbitrary script code, and the SQL injection vulnerability to
access or modify sensitive information from the Mantis database.
Furthermore the cross-site scripting issues give an attacker the
ability to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal
cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the
victim's browser. An attacker could exploit other vulnerabilities to
disclose information.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
