    A buffer overflow has been identified in nginx, a small, powerful,
    scalable web/proxy server, when processing certain chunked transfer
    encoding requests if proxy_pass to untrusted upstream HTTP servers is
    used.  An attacker may use this flaw to perform denial of service
    attacks, disclose worker process memory, or possibly execute arbitrary
    code.
    
    The oldstable distribution (squeeze), is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.1-2.2+wheezy1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
