- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : lighttpd
Vulnerability : DOS
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-1531

It was discovered that lighttpd, a fast webserver with minimal memory
footprint, was didn't correctly handle SSL errors. This could allow
a remote attacker to disconnect all active SSL connections.

This security update fixes a regression in the previous one, which caused
SSL failures.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1.4.13-4etch8.

We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd package.
