 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:277
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : lighttpd
 Date    : November 21, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated lighttpd packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 lighttpd before 1.4.34, when SNI is enabled, configures weak SSL
 ciphers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to hijack sessions
 by inserting packets into the client-server data stream or obtain
 sensitive information by sniffing the network (CVE-2013-4508).
 
 In lighttpd before 1.4.34, if setuid() fails for any reason, for
 instance if an environment limits the number of processes a user can
 have and the target uid already is at the limit, lighttpd will run
 as root. A user who can run CGI scripts could clone() often; in this
 case a lighttpd restart would end up with lighttpd running as root,
 and the CGI scripts would run as root too (CVE-2013-4559).
 
 In lighttpd before 1.4.34, if fam is enabled and there are
 directories reachable from configured doc roots and aliases on
 which FAMMonitorDirectory fails, a remote client could trigger a DoS
 (CVE-2013-4560).
