    Problem type   : repmote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-4727
    A problem was discovered in lighttpd, a fast webserver with minimal memory
    footprint, which could allow the execution of arbitary code via the
    overflow of CGI variables when mod_fcgi was enabled.
    This updated advisory correctly patches the security issue, which was
    not handled in DSA-1362-1.
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd package.
