Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : lighttpd (cve_2014_2469_denial_of)

Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- lighttpd before 1.4.26, and 1.5.x, allocates a buffer
for each read operation that occurs for a request, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption) by breaking a request into small
pieces that are sent at a slow rate. (CVE-2010-0295)

- The configuration file for the FastCGI PHP support for
lighthttpd before 1.4.28 on Debian GNU/Linux creates a
socket file with a predictable name in /tmp, which
allows local users to hijack the PHP control socket and
perform unauthorized actions such as forcing the use of
a different version of PHP via a symlink attack or a
race condition. (CVE-2013-1427)

- Unspecified vulnerability in Lighthttpd in Oracle
Solaris 11.1 allows attackers to cause a denial of
service via unknown vectors. (CVE-2014-2469)
