CVE ID         : CVE-2018-1000168 CVE-2020-11080

Two security issue have been discovered in nghttp2: server, proxy and client
implementing HTTP/2.


    An Improper Input Validation CWE-20 vulnerability found in ALTSVC frame handling
    that can result in segmentation fault leading to denial of service. This attack
    appears to be exploitable via network client.


    The overly large HTTP/2 SETTINGS frame payload causes denial of service.
    The proof of concept attack involves a malicious client constructing a SETTINGS
    frame with a length of 14,400 bytes (2400 individual settings entries) over and over again.
    The attack causes the CPU to spike at 100%.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
