The remote web server is affected by a denial of service
According to its banner, the version of lighttpd running on the remote
host is 1.4.31. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service
vulnerability. An error in the http_request_split_value() function in
'src/request.c' can cause the application to enter an endless loop
when handling specially crafted 'Connection' header requests.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the version in the server's banner.
