<description>
<p>
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in lighttpd:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
Qhy reported a memory leak in the http_request_parse() function in
request.c (CVE-2008-4298).
</li>
<li>
Gaetan Bisson reported that URIs are not decoded before applying
url.redirect and url.rewrite rules (CVE-2008-4359).
</li>
<li>
Anders1 reported that mod_userdir performs case-sensitive comparisons
on filename components in configuration options, which is insufficient
when case-insensitive filesystems are used (CVE-2008-4360).
</li>
</ul>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial
of Service, to bypass intended access restrictions, to obtain sensitive
information, or to possibly modify data.
</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-1.4.20&quot;</code>
</resolution>
