    Debian Bug     : 832571
    
    Dominic Scheirlinck and Scott Geary of Vend reported insecure behavior
    in the lighttpd web server. Lighttpd assigned Proxy header values from
    client requests to internal HTTP_PROXY environment variables, allowing
    remote attackers to carry out Man in the Middle (MITM) attacks or
    initiate connections to arbitrary hosts.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.35-4+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
