Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Since the package referred to in this bug is in universe or multiverse, it is community maintained. If you are able, I suggest coordinating with upstream and posting a debdiff for this issue. When a debdiff is available, members of the security team will review it and publish the package.

A fix won't be provided for Ubuntu 14.04 by the lighttpd team, the issue has also been closed invalid. Thus, I consider the usage of lighttpd on Ubuntu as highly discouraged.

However they have some backports at OpenSuSE, which can be used. See https://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/lighttpd/wiki/GetLighttpd#Debian-based-systems

There's already a patch in comment #1, someone just needs to submit a complete debdiff with it included.
