Package        : lighttpd 
Vulnerability  : denial of service
Problem-Type   : local & remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-1870 CVE-2007-1869
Debian Bug     : 422254 

Two problems were discovered with lighttpd, a fast webserver with
minimal memory footprint, which could allow denial of service.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:


  Remote attackers could cause denial of service by disconnecting
  partway through making a request.


  A NULL pointer dereference could cause a crash when serving files
  with a mtime of 0.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.13-4etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.14-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd package.

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

        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
