Gentoo is not up-to-date

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 34312


The remote Gentoo Linux host is not up-to-date.


According to its timestamp, the portage tree on the remote Gentoo system has not been updated for at least two years. This almost certainly means that security updates are missing and that it is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


Update your system. For example :

# emerge --sync # emerge -u system -v --newuse # etc-update; env-update; source /etc/profile # emerge -u world -D -v --newuse # etc-update; env-update; source /etc/profile
