The remote host is missing an update announced via the referenced Security Advisory.
The http_request_split_value function in request.c in lighttpd before 1.4.32 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a request with a header containing an empty token, as demonstrated using the Connection: TE, , Keep-Alive header.
