The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201209-13
(libjpeg-turbo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
A vulnerability in the get_sos() function in jdmarker.c could cause a
heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted JPEG
file in an application linked against libjpeg-turbo, possibly resulting
in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the
user running the application, or Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All libjpeg-turbo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.2.1'
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
