https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-1218

Description:
Previous versions of the lighttpd package are vulnerable to two denial
of service attacks. One is a remote denial of service that can cause
lighttpd to consume all available CPU time and stop serving requests,
and the other is a denial of service attack which generally requires
a local user to create a file with an mtime of 0; the lighttpd daemon
will crash when attempting to serve that file. This crash does not
enable any arbitrary or directed code execution.
