The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201203-22
(nginx: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in nginx:
The TLS protocol does not properly handle session renegotiation
The 'ngx_http_process_request_headers()' function in ngx_http_parse.c
could cause a NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2009-3896).
nginx does not properly sanitize user input for the the WebDAV COPY
or MOVE methods (CVE-2009-3898).
The 'ngx_resolver_copy()' function in ngx_resolver.c contains a
boundary error which could cause a heap-based buffer overflow
nginx does not properly parse HTTP header responses which could
expose sensitive information (CVE-2012-1180).
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the nginx process, cause a Denial of Service condition,
create or overwrite arbitrary files, or obtain sensitive information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
