The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201612-13
(nghttp2: Denial of Service)
Nghttpd, nghttp, and libnghttp2_asio applications do not limit the
memory usage for the incoming HTTP header field. If a peer sends a
specially crafted HTTP/2 HEADERS frame and CONTINUATION frame, they will
crash with an out of memory error.
A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
