Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200504-24

Multiple SQL injection and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities
have been found in several eGroupWare modules.
A possible hacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerabilites to
gain information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site
scripting issues give a possible hacker the ability to inject and execute
malicious script code or to steal cookie based authentication
credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
