DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201507-16 (Portage: Man-in-the-middle attack)
Portage does not verify X.509 SSL certificates properly if HTTPS is used.
A remote attacker can spoof servers and modify binary package lists via specially crafted certificates.
There is no known workaround at this time.
