The nginx team has released stable version 1.0.14, and development

HTTP responses from upstream servers:



Memory disclosure with specially crafted backend responses
Severity: major
Not vulnerable: 1.1.17+, 1.0.14+
Vulnerable: 0.1.0-1.1.16
The patch  pgp

Without this fix contents of previously freed memory might be sent to
a client if an upstream server returned specially crafted response,
potentially resulting in sensitive information leak.

Patch which can be applied to the earlier versions of nginx is here:

Thanks to Matthew Daley for spotting this one.

This is a nicely formatted CVE request. In future if you want a CVE in
advance you can request one via the VS list and I'll be happy to assign
it privately there.

Please use CVE-2012-1180 for this issue.
