The remote host is missing a security patch.
An attacker sourcing malicious traffic from a network adjacent to the BIG-IP system may be able to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) condition on a vCMP host and the vCMP guests running on it. The vulnerability cannot be exploited outside of the local network segment or by way of the management port. (CVE-2015-6546)
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.
