Name: CVE-2008-1531
Status: Candidate
Reference: CONFIRM:

Reference: CONFIRM:

lighttpd 1.4.19 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (active SSL connection loss) by triggering an SSL error,
such as disconnecting before a download has finished, which causes all
active SSL connections to be lost.
