lighttpd < 1.4.20 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server may be affected by several issues.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of lighttpd installed on the
remote host is older than 1.4.20. Such versions may be affected by
several issues, including :

- SSL connections could be shut down by a remote attacker.

- URL rewrite and redirect patterns can be circumvented by
encoding.

- mod_userdir does not sanitize URLs, which could lead to
an
information disclosure on case insensitive file systems.
e.g. http://example.com/~user/file.PHP would get the
source code of
file.php, instead of running the script.

- The server leaks memory when it processes duplicate
headers. This could
lead to a denial of service by resource exhaustion.
