Vulnerability Scan Summary
Roundup: Filesystem access vulnerability
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-09

Improper handling of a specially crafted URL allows access to the server's
filesystem, which could contain sensitive information.
A possible hacker could view files owned by the user running Roundup. This will
never be root however, as Roundup will not run as root.

# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=net-www/roundup-0.7.6"
