Debian DLA-282-1 : lighttpd security update (POODLE)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84991

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.6


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


This update allows to disable SSLv3 in lighttpd in order to protect against the POODLE attack. SSLv3 is now disabled by default and can be reenabled (if needed) using the ssl.use-sslv3 option.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
