- More information:
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in lighttpd, a fast webserver with minimal memory footprint.
An invalid HTTP request (websocket handshake) may cause a NULL pointer dereference in the wstunnel module.
A resource leak in mod_fastcgi and mod_scgi could lead to a denial of service after a large number of bad HTTP requests.
For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in version 1.4.59-1+deb11u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
