low Nessus Plugin ID 88941
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

lighttpd, a small webserver, is vulnerable to the POODLE attack via the use of SSLv3. This protocol is now disabled by default.

Solution

Upgrade the lighttpd packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.31-4+deb7u4.
