High Nessus Plugin ID 52707


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Hugo Leisink reports :

A bug has been found in version 7.4 of the Hiawatha webserver, which could lead to a server crash. This is caused by an integer overflow in the routine that reads the HTTP request. A too large value of the Content-Length HTTP header results in an overflow.


Update the affected package.
