hi I started to find bug bounty vulnerabilities and i think i found a te.cl vulnerability in a website.

i send

GET / HTTP/1.1
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Host: subdomain.domain.com
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/78.0.3904.87 Safari/537.36
Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 6


GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: subdomain.domain.com

and i get in return

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.<P>

what did i miss? how can i make the second request be a legitimate request?

what did i miss?

You've missed that you've explicitly constructed a request which is open to multiple interpretations and that the best answer a server could do to this is to reject this request. And that's exactly what the server did, i.e. perfectly normal and sane behavior.

how can i make the second request be a legitimate request?

Ideally, all servers would reject such kind of requests. There are many other ways requests might be open to multiple interpretations - see for example HTTP request smuggling. If you are lucky some of these methods work, but from the perspective of security I hope that none work against the specific target.
