SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that there was vulnerability in the range filter of nginx, a web/proxy server. A specially crafted request might result in an integer overflow and incorrect processing of HTTP ranges, potentially resulting in a sensitive information leak.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in nginx version 1.2.1-2.2+wheezy4+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
