    Package        : nginx
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-1247
    
    Dawid Golunski reported the nginx web server packages in Debian
    suffered from a privilege escalation vulnerability (www-data to root)
    due to the way log files are handled.  This security update changes
    ownership of the /var/log/nginx directory root.  In addition,
    /var/log/nginx has to be made accessible to local users, and local
    users may be able to read the log files themselves local until the
    next logrotate invocation.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.2-5+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
