Thanks for your report.

There was an issue in the mentioned httpd_boa.nasl VT where a TCP socket was closed within a loop and where the VT was trying to send additional data afterwards (to the already closed socket). The VT has been fixed and should arrive in the Feed soon.

The seen SIGSEGV was unrelated and i have removed it from your initial post to avoid that different issues are mixed within one single thread.

Please report the SIGSEGV problem directly to the team working on the scanning engine. The matching issue tracker for this component is https://github.com/greenbone/openvas-scanner/issues. Please make sure to fill out the whole template shown during the issue creation so all required infos are provided.
