CVE-2010-0295 (
  lighttpd before 1.4.26, and 1.5.x, allocates a buffer for each read
  operation that occurs for a request, which allows remote attackers to
  cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by breaking a request
  into small pieces that are sent at a slow rate.

YES too, request filed.

Please note that due to huge workload it will take some time for the GLSA to be written.
