Gentoo Security Advisory GLSA 200410-07 (ed)

The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory GLSA 200410-07.
All ed users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=sys-apps/ed-0.2-r4' # emerge '>=sys-apps/ed-0.2-r4'
The ed utility is vulnerable to symlink attacks, potentially allowing a local user to overwrite or change rights on arbitrary files with the rights of the user running ed, which could be the root user.
