A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update as soon as possible or disable the service if you are using
this software on your SuSE Linux installation(s).

_____________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Description

  The thttpd web server doesn't do proper bounds checking in the date parsing
  function tdate_parse().

2. Impact

  By overflowing a static buffer in tdate_parse() an attacker could remotely
  execute commands on the thttpd host with the permissions of thttpd.

3. Solution

  Updated the package from our FTP server.
