The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201612-55
(libjpeg-turbo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
The accelerated Huffman decoder was previously invoked if there were 128
bytes in the input buffer. However, it is possible to construct a JPEG
image with Huffman blocks > 430 bytes in length. This release simply
increases the minimum buffer size for the accelerated Huffman decoder to
512 bytes, which should accommodate any possible input.
A remote attacker could coerce the victim to run a specially crafted
image file resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
