The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201404-02
(libproxy: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
A boundary error when processing the proxy.pac file could cause a

code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
