- More information:
It was discovered that there was a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability in the nginx web/proxy server.
As there was no validation for the size of a 64-bit atom in an MP4 file, this could have led to a CPU hog when the size was 0, or various other problems due to integer underflow when the calculating atom data size, including segmentation faults or even worker-process memory disclosure.
For Debian 8
Jessie, this issue has been fixed in nginx version 1.6.2-5+deb8u6.
We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
