The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201607-12
(Exim: Arbitrary code execution)
Vulnerabilities have been discovered in Exim’s implementation of
set-uid root and when using ‘perl_startup’. These vulnerabilities
require a user account on the Exim server and a configuration that does
lookups against files to which the user has edit access.
A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, or escalate privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=mail-mta/exim-4.87'

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.6
