Description

lighttpd before 1.4.26, and 1.5.x, allocates a buffer for each read operation that occurs for a request, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by breaking a request into small pieces that are sent at a slow rate.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-lighttpd
  • suse-upgrade-lighttpd-mod_cml
  • suse-upgrade-lighttpd-mod_magnet
  • suse-upgrade-lighttpd-mod_mysql_vhost
  • suse-upgrade-lighttpd-mod_rrdtool
  • suse-upgrade-lighttpd-mod_trigger_b4_dl
