Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.13-4etch1
Severity: grave

Debian stable's version of Lighttpd crashes in a similar way as
explained in this lighttpd trac ticket

There seems to be other important bugs with fixes coming up in a new
version soon; I found the problem from rPath advisories posted on


Just a heads-up to put this on the radar (the previous round of lighttpd
issues seemed to go unnoticed for almost a month), sorry to bother
you if you are already aware of the issues. I set the severity to grave 
since it's (at least) a DoS vulnerability.
