The web server on the remote host is affected by a memory disclosure
The remote web server is running nginx, a lightweight, high
performance web server / reverse proxy and email (IMAP/POP3) proxy.
According to its Server response header, the installed version of
nginx is earlier than 1.0.14 or is 1.1.x before 1.1.17 and is,
therefore, affected by a memory disclosure vulnerability.
An issue related to the parsing of HTTP header responses can allow a
remote attacker to obtain the contents of previously freed memory.
