Package        : lighttpd
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-2323 CVE-2014-2324
Debian Bug     : 741493

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the lighttpd web server.

CVE-2014-2323

    Jann Horn discovered that specially crafted host names can be used
    to inject arbitrary MySQL queries in lighttpd servers using the
    MySQL virtual hosting module (mod_mysql_vhost).

    This only affects installations with the lighttpd-mod-mysql-vhost
    binary package installed and in use.

CVE-2014-2324

    Jann Horn discovered that specially crafted host names can be used
    to traverse outside of the document root under certain situations
    in lighttpd servers using either the mod_mysql_vhost, mod_evhost,
    or mod_simple_vhost virtual hosting modules.

    Servers not using these modules are not affected.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.28-2+squeeze1.6.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.31-4+deb7u3.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.33-1+nmu3.

We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
