    Debian Bug     : 741493
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the lighttpd web server.
    
    CVE-2014-2323
    
        Jann Horn discovered that specially crafted host names can be used
        to inject arbitrary MySQL queries in lighttpd servers using the
        MySQL virtual hosting module (mod_mysql_vhost).
    
        This only affects installations with the lighttpd-mod-mysql-vhost
        binary package installed and in use.
    
    CVE-2014-2324
    
        Jann Horn discovered that specially crafted host names can be used
        to traverse outside of the document root under certain situations
        in lighttpd servers using either the mod_mysql_vhost, mod_evhost,
        or mod_simple_vhost virtual hosting modules.
    
        Servers not using these modules are not affected.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.28-2+squeeze1.6.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.31-4+deb7u3.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.33-1+nmu3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
