The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201409-07
(c-icap: Denial of Service)
c-icap contains a flaw in the parse_request() function of request.c that
may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered when the
buffer fails to contain a ‘ ‘ or ‘?’ symbol, which will cause the
end pointer to increase and surpass allocated memory. With a specially
crafted request (e.g. via the OPTIONS method), a remote attacker can
cause a loss of availability for the program.
A remote attacker may cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
