Summary     : Lightning fast webserver with light system requirements
Description :
Secure, fast, compliant and very flexible web-server which has been
optimized
for high-performance environments. It has a very low memory footprint

it the perfect webserver-software for every server that is suffering load
problems.

Update Information:

One important denial of service (in 1.4.31) fix: CVE-2012-5533.

A flaw was found in lighttpd version 1.4.31 that could be exploited by a
remote user to cause a denial of service condition in lighttpd.  A client
could send a malformed Connection header to lighttpd (such as "Connection:
TE,,Keep-Alive"), which would cause lighttpd to enter an endless loop,
detecting an empty token but not incrementing the current string position,
causing it to continually read ',' over and over.

This flaw was introduced in 1.4.31 [1] when an "invalid read" bug was fixed
[2].
