    A denial of service vulnerability has been found in nginx, a small and
    efficient web server.
    
    Jasson Bell discovered that a remote attacker could cause a denial of service
    (segmentation fault) by sending a crafted request.
    
    For the old stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    0.4.13-2+etch3
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version
    0.6.32-3+lenny3
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem has
    been fixed in version 0.7.62-1
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nginx package.
    
    Upgrade instructions

    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
