rPath Update Announcements (announce-noreply rpath com)
rPath Security Advisory: 2008-0132-1
Published: 2008-03-31
rPath Linux 1

Rating: Major
Exposure Level Classification:
Remote Deterministic Denial of Service
Updated Versions:

rPath Issue Tracking System:


Previous versions of the lighttpd package are vulnerable to a remote
Denial of Service attack in which the termination of one SSL connection
may cause another concurrent SSL connection to terminate prematurely.

lighttpd is not installed by default on rPath Linux systems, and no
default configuration file is provided; only systems customized to
include and configure lighttpd are vulnerable.

Appliances built with rPath Appliance Platform Agent 2 use lighttpd and
are vulnerable to this denial of service attack. All appliances built
using rPath Appliance Platform Agent 2 should be updated to include the
latest release of lighttpd.
