The remote web server is affected by an information disclosure
The Acme mini_httpd web server running on the remote host is affected
by a flaw in the add_headers() function within file mini_httpd.c that
is triggered when handling HTTP requests that have a very long
protocol string. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this,
via a crafted request, to cause an out-of-bounds read error, resulting
in the disclose of sensitive information in process memory.

If possible, upgrade to Acme mini_httpd version 1.23 or later. For
vendor hardware, such as modems or industrial control devices, ensure
that the firmware is current and/or its net access is limited to
trusted networks only.
