The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201503-07
(hivex: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Manipulating a short or truncated hive file may trigger an out-of-bounds
read or write in hivex.
A context-dependent attacker could cause an application linked against
hivex to pass a short or truncated hive file, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a
Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
