The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


Maliciously crafted HTTP/2 request frames can lead to denial of service. There is data plane exposure for virtual servers when the HTTP2 profile is enabled. There is no control plane exposure to this issue. (CVE-2018-5514)


The BIG-IP system may temporarily fail to process traffic as it recovers from a Traffic Management Microkernel (TMM) restart, and devices configured as a high availability (HA) pair may fail over.
