Debian Security Advisory DSA-1920-1 security@debian.org

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vulnerability : denial of service
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : no CVE Id yet
Debian Bug : 552035

A denial of service vulnerability has been found in nginx, a small and
efficient web server.

Jasson Bell discovered that a remote attacker could cause a denial of service
(segmentation fault) by sending a crafted request.

For the old stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
0.4.13-2+etch3

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version
0.6.32-3+lenny3

For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem has
been fixed in version 0.7.62-1


We recommend that you upgrade your nginx package.

Upgrade instructions

apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

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