The version of F5 Networks BIG-IP installed on the remote host is prior to 16.0.0. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the K35040315 advisory.

  • In the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) through 2.28, the getaddrinfo function would successfully parse a string that contained an IPv4 address followed by whitespace and arbitrary characters, which could lead applications to incorrectly assume that it had parsed a valid string, without the possibility of embedded HTTP headers or other potentially dangerous substrings. (CVE-2016-10739)

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