Fedora 9 : lighttpd-1.4.19-4.fc9 (2008-4119)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 32386


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a bug where a user could kill another user's SSL connection by killing his own, because the SSL error queue wasn't cleared properly.

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.


Update the affected lighttpd package.
