Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Ziproxy Developers reports :

Multiple HTTP proxy implementations are prone to an
information-disclosure vulnerability related to the interpretation of
the 'Host' HTTP header. Specifically, this issue occurs when the proxy
makes a forwarding decision based on the 'Host' HTTP header instead of
the destination IP address.

Attackers may exploit this issue to obtain sensitive information such
as internal intranet webpages. Additional attacks may also be
possible.
