Debian Security Advisory DSA-1884-1                    security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                                 Nico Golde
September 14th, 2009                    http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : nginx
Vulnerability  : buffer underflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2009-2629

Chris Ries discovered that nginx, a high-performance HTTP server, reverse
proxy and IMAP/POP3 proxy server, is vulnerable to a buffer underflow when
processing certain HTTP requests.  An attacker can use this to execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the worker process (www-data on Debian)
or possibly perform denial of service attacks by repeatedly crashing
worker processes via a specially crafted URL in an HTTP request.


For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.13-2+etch2.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6.32-3+lenny2.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7.61-3.


We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
