It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALAS2023-2024-480 advisory.

  • The HTTP/1 client does not fully validate the contents of the Host header. A maliciously crafted Host header can inject additional headers or entire requests. With fix, the HTTP/1 client now refuses to send requests containing an invalid Request.Host or Request.URL.Host value. (CVE-2023-29406)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the applicationโ€™s self-reported version number.
