    Package        : thttpd
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitizing, wrong calculation
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1562 CAN-2003-0899
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in thttpd, a tiny HTTP
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following vulnerabilities:
    CAN-2002-1562: Information leak
      Marcus Breiing discovered that if thttpd it is used for virtual
      hosting, and an attacker supplies a specially crafted ``Host:''
      header with a pathname instead of a hostname, thttpd will reveal
      information about the host system.  Hence, an attacker can browse
      the entire disk.
    CAN-2003-0899: Arbitrary code execution
      Joel Soderberg and Christer Oberg discovered a remote overflow which
      allows an attacker to partially overwrite the EBP register and
      hencely execute arbitrary code.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.21b-11.2.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.23beta1-2.3.
    We recommend that you upgrade your thttpd package immediately.
