|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: lighttpd: Denial of Service (GLSA 201006-17)
Date: June 03, 2010
A processing error in lighttpd might result in a Denial of Service
lighttpd is a lightweight high-performance web server.
Vulnerable: < 1.4.25-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.4.25-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Li Ming reported that lighttpd does not properly process packets that
are sent overly slow.
A remote attacker might send specially crafted packets to a server
running lighttpd, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition
via host memory exhaustion.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All lighttpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-servers/lighttpd-1.4.25-r1"
