The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


It 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.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
