The remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.
The remote FortiGate device is running a version of FortiOS that is
4.1.x prior to 4.1.11, 4.2.x prior to 4.2.13, or 4.3.x prior to 4.3.9.
It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability,
known as EGREGIOUSBLUNDER, in the web interface due to improper
validation when parsing cookies. An unauthenticated, remote attacker
can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to cause a
buffer overflow condition, resulting in a denial of service condition
