The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201606-07
(dhcpcd: Multiple vulnerabilities)
A heap overflow can be triggered via malformed DHCP responses in the
print_option (via dhcp_envoption1) due to incorrect option length values.
These vulnerabilities could also allow remote attackers to trigger an
invalid read/crash via malformed DHCP responses.
Remote attackers could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
