The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201410-02
(Perl, Perl Locale-Maketext module: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in the Locale-Maketext module for
Perl, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise an
application using the module.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to the “_compile()” function not
properly sanitising input, which can be exploited to inject and execute
arbitrary Perl code.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
