The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201605-01
(Git: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Git is vulnerable to the remote execution of arbitrary code by cloning
repositories with large filenames or a large number of nested trees.
Additionally, some protocols within Git, such as git-remote-ext, can
execute arbitrary code found within URLs. These URLs that submodules use
may come from arbitrary sources (e.g., .gitmodules files in a remote
repository), and can effect those who enable recursive fetch. Restrict
the allowed protocols to well known and safe ones.
Remote attackers could execute arbitrary code on both client and server.
There is no known workaround at this time.
