Fedora 7 : lighttpd-1.4.18-1.fc7 (2007-2132)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27752
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionLighttpd (1.4.17 and earlier) is prone to a header overflow when using the mod_fastcgi extension, this can lead to arbitrary code execution in the fastcgi application. This 1.4.18 update fixes the issue.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
