Fedora 7 : lighttpd-1.4.18-1.fc7 (2007-2132)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Lighttpd (1.4.17 and earlier) is prone to a header overflow when using
the mod_fastcgi extension, this can lead to arbitrary code execution
in the fastcgi application. This 1.4.18 update fixes the issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
