The remote web server is affected by a denial of service
According to the self-reported version in its response header, the
version of nginx hosted on the remote web server is 1.9.x prior to
1.9.6. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability
due to a double-free memory error in the HTTPv2 module that is
triggered when handling certain PRI packets. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted RPI packet, to cause a
section of heap-based memory to be freed twice, which can result in
crashing the server.
