The remote web server is prone to a denial of service attack.
The remote host appears to be running FastStream NETFile Server
version 7.1 or older. These versions do not close the connection when
an HTTP HEAD request is received with the keep-alive option set. An
attacker may exploit this flaw by sending multiple HEAD requests to
the remote host, thus consuming all its file descriptors until it does
not accept connections any more.
