The remote proxy is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
The remote host appears to be running WinGate, a Windows application
for managing and securing Internet access.
The version of WinGate installed on the remote host contains a flaw
involving the processing of DNS requests with compressed name
pointers. By sending a specially crafted DNS request to a UDP port on
which WinGate is listening, an unauthenticated, remote attacker can
cause the affected application to consume 100% of the available CPU,
thereby denying service to legitimate users.

Upgrade to WinGate 6.2.0 or later.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.1
Public Exploit Available : true
