Package        : lighttpd
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-1000212
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.
