nginx ngx_http_mp4_module.c buffer overflow
|nginx-ngxhttpmp4module-bo (74831)||High Risk|
nginx is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the ngx_http_mp4_module.c. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted mp4 file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of nginx (1.0.15 or 1.1.19 or later), available from the nginx Web site. See References.
