Problem type : local/remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-3946
Debian Bug : 434888

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in lighttpd, a fast webserver with
minimal memory footprint. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-3946

The use of mod_auth could leave to a denial of service attack crashing
the webserver

CVE-2007-3947

CVE-2007-3949

A bug in mod_access potentially allows remote users to bypass
access restrictions via trailing slash characters.

CVE-2007-3950

On 32-bit platforms users may be able to create denial of service
attacks, crashing the webserver, via mod_webdav, mod_fastcgi, or
mod_scgi.


For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version
1.4.13-4etch3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.16-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd package.
