- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 664137.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2012-1180.
- More information:
Matthew Daley discovered a memory disclosure vulnerability in nginx. In previous versions of this web server, an attacker can receive the content of previously freed memory if an upstream server returned a specially crafted HTTP response, potentially exposing sensitive information.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.7.67-3+squeeze2.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.17-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
