The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201206-20
(gdk-pixbuf: Denial of Service)
Two vulnerabilities have been found in gdk-pixbuf:
The 'gdk_pixbuf__gif_image_load()' function in io-gif.c fails to

The 'read_bitmap_file_data()' function in io-xbm.c contains an
integer overflow error (CVE-2012-2370).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image
in an application linked against gdk-pixbuf, possibly resulting in Denial
There is no known workaround at this time.

All gdk-pixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf-2.24.1-r1'
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
