Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

lighttpd security advisories report :

It is possible to inadvertantly enable vulnerable ciphers when using
ssl.cipher-list.

In certain cases setuid() and similar can fail, potentially triggering
lighttpd to restart running as root.

If FAMMonitorDirectory fails, the memory intended to store the context
is released; some lines below the 'version' compoment of that context
is read. Reading invalid data doesn't matter, but the memory access
could trigger a segfault.
