Fedora 12 : lighttpd-1.4.26-2.fc12 (2010-7643)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47469


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Update lighttpd to the latest version of the 1.4 branch, with the spawn-fcgi program split out for the first time on EL. This fixes CVE-2010-0295 and also includes a fix for upstream bug #2157 where SSL stopped working with RHEL 5.4.

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.
