High Nessus Plugin ID 72494


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


lighttpd security advisories report :

It is possible to inadvertantly enable vulnerable ciphers when using ssl.cipher-list.

In certain cases setuid() and similar can fail, potentially triggering lighttpd to restart running as root.

If FAMMonitorDirectory fails, the memory intended to store the context is released; some lines below the 'version' compoment of that context is read. Reading invalid data doesn't matter, but the memory access could trigger a segfault.


Update the affected package.
