ACME Updates reports:

mini_httpd 1.21 and earlier allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory via an HTTP request with a long protocol string, which triggers an incorrect response size calculation and an out-of-bounds read.

(rene) ACME, the author, claims that the vulnerability is fixed *after* version 1.22, released on 2015-12-28
