The remote Debian 9 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the dla-2857 advisory.

  • PostGIS 2.x before 2.3.3, as used with PostgreSQL, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via crafted ST_AsX3D function input, as demonstrated by an abnormal server termination for SELECT ST_AsX3D(โ€˜LINESTRING EMPTYโ€™); because empty geometries are mishandled. (CVE-2017-18359)

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