    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the resolver in nginx, a
    small, powerful, scalable web/proxy server, leading to denial of service
    or, potentially, to arbitrary code execution. These only affect nginx if
    the "resolver" directive is used in a configuration file.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.2.1-2.2+wheezy4.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.6.2-5+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.9.10-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.9.10-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
