The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200708-02
(Xvid: Array indexing vulnerabilities)
Trixter Jack discovered an array indexing error in the
get_intra_block() function in the file src/bitstream/mbcoding.c. The
get_inter_block_h263() and get_inter_block_mpeg() functions in the same
file were also reported as vulnerable.
An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary
code by tricking a user or automated system into processing a malicious
video file with an application that makes use of the Xvid library.
There is no known workaround at this time.
