The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201406-13
(memcached: Multiple vulnerabilities)
memcached authentication could be bypassed when using SASL due to a flaw
related to SASL authentication state. Also several heap-based buffer
overflows due to integer conversions when parsing certain length
attributes were discovered.
A remote attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, cause a Denial of
Service condition or authenticate with invalid SASL credentials,
bypassing memcached authentication completely.
There is no known workaround at this time.

All memcached users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/memcached-1.4.17'
