    Vulnerability  : file disclosure
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-1270
    
    Julien Cayzac discovered that under certain circumstances lighttpd,
    a fast webserver with minimal memory footprint, might allow the reading
    of arbitrary files from the system.  This problem could only occur
    with a non-standard configuration.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in 
    version 1.4.13-4etch6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd package.
