<description>
<p>
lighttpd contains a calculation error when allocating the global file
descriptor array (CVE-2008-0983). Furthermore, it sends the source of a
CGI script instead of returning a 500 error (Internal Server Error)
when the fork() system call fails (CVE-2008-1111).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial
of Service or gain the source of a CGI script.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All lighttpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-servers/lighttpd-1.4.18-r2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
