Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA396] DSA-396-1 thttpd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-396-1 thttpd

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in thttpd, a tiny HTTP
server.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following vulnerabilities:
Marcus Breiing discovered that if thttpd it is used for virtual
hosting, and a possible hacker supplies a specially crafted &ldquo
Host:&rdquo

header with a pathname instead of a hostname, thttpd will reveal
information about the host system. Hence, a possible hacker can browse
the entire disk.
Joel Söderberg and Christer Öberg discovered a remote overflow which
permits a possible hacker to partially overwrite the EBP register and
hence execute arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.21b-11.2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.23beta1-2.3.
We recommend that you upgrade your thttpd package immediately.
