published for lighttpd.

| 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.
to patch this and not the referenced trac changeset because
it contains a bug (see #474951).

CVE id in your changelog entry.
