The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201206-16
(TagLib: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in TagLib:
The 'analyzeCurrent()' function in ape/apeproperties.cpp contains a
division by zero error (CVE-2012-1107).
The 'parse()' function in inogg/xiphcomment.cpp contains an error
when processing the 'vendorLength' field (CVE-2012-1108).
The 'mid()' function in toolkit/tbytevector.cpp contains an integer
overflow error (CVE-2012-1584).
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a
specially crafted OGG file with an application using TagLib, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
