CVE-ID : CVE-2016-4450
Package : nginx-mainline
Type : denial of service
Remote : Yes
Link : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CVE
The package nginx-mainline before version 1.11.1-1 is vulnerable to
denial of service.
Upgrade to 1.11.1-1.
# pacman -Syu "nginx-mainline>=1.11.1-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.11.1.
A vulnerability was found in nginx code responsible for saving client
request body to a temporary file. A specially crafted request might
result in worker process crash due to a NULL pointer dereference while
handling the client request body.
A remote attacker is able to use a specially crafted request to crash
the worker resulting in denial of service.
