Description Martin Prpič 2014-03-12 15:53:58 UTC
It was reported [1] that lighttpd's mod_mysql_vhost module is vulnerable to SQL injection attacks (CVE-2014-2323), and the mod_evhost or mod_simple_vhost modules are vulnerable to directory traversal attacks (CVE-2014-2324). More information can be found at [2].

This issue has been fixed in version 1.4.35 of lighttpd [3], and the patch is available at [4].

A workaround for this issue exists:

* Disable the mod_mysql_vhost module.
* Do not use the mod_evhost or mod_simple_vhost modules for IPv6 addresses as host names (i.e. don't have and don't allow creation of "[...]" directories in the base directories).
