DESCRIPTION
 thttpd is a very simple and compact HTTP server.
 
 The thttpd package distributed with Conectiva Linux 9
 (thttpd-2.20c-22870cl) contains several bugs[1] that prevent it from
 being useful. This update fixes these bugs and the following security
 vulnerabilities that affect thttpd 2.20c (descriptions borrowed from
 the respectives CVE pages):
 
 - Sensitive files disclosure vulnerability[2] (CAN-2001-0892)
 With the chroot option enabled, thttpd allows remote attackers to
 view sensitive files under the document root (such as .htpasswd) via
 a GET request with a trailing '/.'.
 
 - Cross-site scripting vulnerability[3] (CVE-2002-0733)
 thttpd allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary scripts via a URL
 to a nonexistent page, which causes thttpd to insert the script into
 a 404 error message.
 
 - Directory traversal vulnerability[4] (CAN-2002-1562)
 When using virtual hosting, thttpd allows remote attackers to read
 arbitrary files via '..' (dot dot) sequences in the 'Host:' header.
 
 The thttpd package has been updated to the "2.24" version, the latest
 stable one available at this time.


SOLUTION
 Users should install the new packages if they want to use thttpd.
