Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-20

manipulated URL, a possible hacker can execute arbitrary scripts running in
the context of the victim's browser. This could lead to a compromise of
the user's browser content.

There is no known workaround at this time.
