    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the TLS/SSL protocol. This
    update addresses these protocol vulnerabilities in lighttpd.
    
    CVE-2009-3555
    
      Marsh Ray, Steve Dispensa, and Martin Rex discovered that the TLS
      and SSLv3 protocols do not properly associate renegotiation
      handshakes with an existing connection, which allows man-in-the-middle
      attackers to insert data into HTTPS sessions. This issue is solved
      in lighttpd by disabling client initiated renegotiation by default.
      
      Those users that do actually need such renegotiations, can reenable
      them via the new 'ssl.disable-client-renegotiation' parameter.
    
    CVE-2012-4929
    
      Juliano Rizzo and Thai Duong discovered a weakness in the TLS/SSL
      protocol when using compression. This side channel attack, dubbed
      'CRIME', allows eavesdroppers to gather information to recover the
      original plaintext in the protocol. This update disables compression.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.28-2+squeeze1.2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), and the unstable distribution (sid)
    these problems have been fixed in version 1.4.30-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
