The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201701-19
(NTFS-3G: Privilege escalation)
NTFS-3G is affected by the same vulnerability as reported in “GLSA
201603-04” when the bundled fuse-lite implementation is used.
A local user could gain root privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time. However, on Gentoo when the
“external-fuse” USE flag is set or the “suid” USE flag is not set
then NTFS-3G is not affected. Both of these cases are the default

All NTFS-3G users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=sys-fs/ntfs3g-2016.2.22'
Risk factor :
Low / CVSS Base Score : 3.6
Public Exploit Available : true
