Medium Nessus Plugin ID 14511
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200405-25 (tla: Multiple vulnerabilities in included libneon)
Multiple format string vulnerabilities and a heap overflow vulnerability were discovered in the code of the neon library (GLSA 200405-01 and 200405-13). Current versions of the tla package include their own version of this library.

There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll users of tla should upgrade to the latest stable version:
