[SECURITY] [DLA 583-1] lighttpd security update

Package        : lighttpd
Version        : 1.4.31-4+deb7u5
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-1000212
Debian Bug     : 832571

Dominic Scheirlinck and Scott Geary of Vend reported an insecure
behaviour in the lighttpd web server. Lighttpd assigned Proxy header
values from client requests to internal HTTP_PROXY environment
variables. This could be used to carry out Man in the Middle Attacks
(MIDM) or create connections to arbitrary hosts.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", this issue has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
