The remote web server is potentially affected by a denial of service
According to its self-reported version, the lighttpd install on the
remote host is 1.4.31 and is, therefore, potentially affected by a
denial of service vulnerability.
An error in the function 'http_request_split_value' in the file
'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.
