The remote web server is affected by a remote memory disclosure
According to its Server response header, the installed version of nginx
is 1.1.x, greater than or equal to 1.1.4, or 1.2.x prior to 1.2.9. It
is, therefore, affected by a memory disclosure vulnerability in
'ngx_http_proxy_module.c' when 'proxy_pass' to untrusted upstream
servers is used.
By sending a specially crafted request, an attacker may be able to gain
access to worker process memory or trigger a denial of service
See also :
Either apply the patch manually or upgrade to nginx 1.2.9 or later.
