ELA-441-1 nginx security update

buffer overflow

Related CVEs CVE-2017-20005

Jamie Landeg-Jones and Manfred Paul discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in NGINX, a small, powerful, scalable web/proxy server.

NGINX has a buffer overflow for years that exceed four digits, as demonstrated by a file with a modification date in 1969 that causes an integer overflow (or a false modification date far in the future), when encountered by the autoindex module.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.2-5+deb8u9.

We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
