SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201401-33 (Perl Digest-Base module: Arbitrary code execution)
The vulnerability is caused due to the “Digest->new()” function not properly sanitising input before using it in an “eval()” call.
The vulnerability might allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
