    Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in lighttpd,
    a fast webserver with minimal memory footprint.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the 
    following problems:
      lighttpd 1.4.18, and possibly other versions before 1.5.0, does not
      properly calculate the size of a file descriptor array, which allows 
      remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a large number 
      of connections, which triggers an out-of-bounds access. 
      connections.c in lighttpd before 1.4.16 might accept more connections 
      than the configured maximum, which allows remote attackers to cause a
      denial of service (failed assertion) via a large number of connection
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.13-4etch9.
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.18-2.
    We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd package.

      its next update.
