|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: nginx: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201310-04)
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: October 06, 2013
Bug(s): #458726, #468870
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in nginx, the worst of
which may allow execution of arbitrary code.
nginx is a robust, small, and high performance HTTP and reverse proxy
Vulnerable: < 1.4.1-r2
Unaffected: >= 1.4.1-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in nginx. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request, possibly
resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process, or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a
context-dependent attacker may be able to obtain sensitive information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All nginx users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-servers/nginx-1.4.1-r2"
