Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:277
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : lighttpd
Date : November 21, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated lighttpd packages fix security vulnerabilities:

lighttpd before 1.4.34, when SNI is enabled, configures weak SSL
ciphers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to hijack sessions
by inserting packets into the client-server data stream or obtain
sensitive information by sniffing the network (CVE-2013-4508).

In lighttpd before 1.4.34, if setuid() fails for any reason, for
instance if an environment limits the number of processes a user can
have and the target uid already is at the limit, lighttpd will run
as root. A user who can run CGI scripts could clone() often; in this
case a lighttpd restart would end up with lighttpd running as root,
and the CGI scripts would run as root too (CVE-2013-4559).

In lighttpd before 1.4.34, if fam is enabled and there are
directories reachable from configured doc roots and aliases on
which FAMMonitorDirectory fails, a remote client could trigger a DoS
(CVE-2013-4560).
