The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-04
(lighttpd: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in lighttpd:
Qhy reported a memory leak in the http_request_parse() function in
Gaetan Bisson reported that URIs are not decoded before applying
url.redirect and url.rewrite rules (CVE-2008-4359).
Anders1 reported that mod_userdir performs case-sensitive comparisons
on filename components in configuration options, which is insufficient
when case-insensitive filesystems are used (CVE-2008-4360).
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial
of Service, to bypass intended access restrictions, to obtain sensitive
information, or to possibly modify data.
There is no known workaround at this time.
