Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : nginx (MDVSA-2015:094)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82347
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdated nginx package fixes security vulnerabilities :
A bug in the experimental SPDY implementation in nginx was found, which might allow an attacker to cause a heap memory buffer overflow in a worker process by using a specially crafted request, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution (CVE-2014-0133).
Antoine Delignat-Lavaud and Karthikeyan Bhargavan discovered that it was possible to reuse cached SSL sessions in unrelated contexts, allowing virtual host confusion attacks in some configurations by an attacker in a privileged network position (CVE-2014-3616).
SolutionUpdate the affected nginx package.
