In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-20005.
More information:

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 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 1.10.3-1+deb9u7.

We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.

For the detailed security status of nginx please refer to its security tracker page at:
