The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201612-17
(PECL HTTP: Remote execution of arbitrary code)
A buffer overflow can be triggered in the URL parsing functions of the
PECL HTTP extension. This allows overflowing
a buffer with data originating from an arbitrary HTTP request.
A remote attacker, through a specially crafted URI, could possibly
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process.
There is no known workaround at this time.
