<background>
<p>nginx is a robust, small, and high performance HTTP and reverse proxy
server.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>An error in ngx_http_mp4_module.c could cause a buffer overflow.</p>
<p>NOTE: nginx must have been emerged with USE="nginx_modules_http_mp4" in
order to be affected by this vulnerability.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to place a specially crafted MP4
file on the nginx server, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All nginx users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=www-servers/nginx-1.0.15"
</code>
</resolution>
