Description:
Previous versions of the lighttpd package contain multiple
vulnerabilities, the most serious of which may allow a remote
attacker to cause a Denial of Service by sending an excessive
number of duplicate header requests.

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.
