Synopsis
========

A vulnerability has been discovered in lighttpd which could result in
denial of service.

Background
==========

Lighttpd is a lightweight high-performance web server.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-servers/lighttpd       < 1.4.67                    >= 1.4.67

Description
===========

Lighttpd's mod_wstunnel does not initialize a handler function pointer
if an invalid HTTP request (websocket handshake) is received.

Impact
======

An attacker can trigger a denial of service via making Lighttpd try to
call an uninitialized function pointer.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All lighttpd users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-servers/lighttpd-1.4.67"
