The remote host is missing a security update for OS X Server.
The remote Mac OS X 10.9 host has a version of OS X Server installed
that is prior to 3.1.2. It is, therefore, affected by a heap-based
buffer overflow vulnerability in the Ruby component that occurs when
converting a string to a floating point value. A remote attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted request to Profile Manager or to
a Ruby script, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution
of arbitrary code.
