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

low Nessus Plugin ID 84991
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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.
