Fedora 12 : lighttpd-1.4.26-2.fc12 (2010-7643)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Update lighttpd to the latest version of the 1.4 branch, with the
spawn-fcgi program split out for the first time on EL. This fixes
CVE-2010-0295 and also includes a fix for upstream bug #2157 where SSL
stopped working with RHEL 5.4.

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.
