The connection_state_machine function (connections.c) in lighttpd
1.4.19 and earlier, and 1.5.x before 1.5.0, 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.
