Updated lighttpd packages fix CVE-2015-3200 & other bugs

Publication date: 08 Sep 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4 , 5
CVE: CVE-2015-3200


Updated lighttpd packages fix security vulnerability:

mod_auth in lighttpd before 1.4.36 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary
log entries via a basic HTTP authentication string without a colon character,
as demonstrated by a string containing a NULL and new line character

The lighttpd package has been updated to version 1.4.37, fixing this issue and
several other bugs.

In the Mageia 4 package, improvements have been made to the logrotate
configuration and systemd service, allowing graceful reloading of
configuration files and proper re-opening of log files (mga#15948, mga#15980).
