How to fix?

There is no fixed version for Ubuntu:18.04 nghttp2.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream nghttp2 package and not the nghttp2 package as distributed by Ubuntu. See How to fix? for Ubuntu:18.04 relevant fixed versions and status.

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to resource loops, potentially leading to a denial of service. The attacker creates multiple request streams and continually shuffles the priority of the streams in a way that causes substantial churn to the priority tree. This can consume excess CPU.
