openSUSE Security Update : lighttpd (openSUSE-SU-2014:0072-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

- added cve-2013-4508.patch and
cve-2013-4508-regression-bug729480.patch: (bnc#849059)
When defining an ssl.cipher-list, it works for the
'default' HTTPS setup ($SERVER['socket'] 443 block), but
when you utilize SNI ($HTTP['host'] blocks within the
$SERVER['socket'] block) the ssl.cipher-list seems to
not inherit into the host blocks and instead will
default to include all of the available openssl ciphers
(except SSL v2/v3 based if those are disabled)

- added cve-2013-4559.patch (bnc#850468) check success of
setuid,setgid,setgroups

- added cve-2013-4560.patch (bnc#850469) FAM: fix use
after free
