The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200803-10
(lighttpd: Multiple vulnerabilities)
lighttpd contains a calculation error when allocating the global file
descriptor array (CVE-2008-0983). Furthermore, it sends the source of a
CGI script instead of returning a 500 error (Internal Server Error)
when the fork() system call fails (CVE-2008-1111).
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial
of Service or gain the source of a CGI script.
There is no known workaround at this time.
