Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119608


The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


According to its banner, the version of lighttpd running on the remote host is prior to 1.4.51. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities according to its release notes:

- An unspecified header processing vulnerability in core

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to lighttpd version 1.4.51.
