Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1126891
CVE-2014-3556 nginx: SMTP STARTTLS plaintext injection flaw
Last modified: 2015-03-24 10:02:16 EDT
Upstream  reports:
A bug in nginx SMTP proxy was found, which allows an attacker in a
privileged network position to inject commands into SSL sessions started
with the STARTTLS command, potentially making it possible to steal
sensitive information sent by clients (CVE-2014-3556).
The problem affects nginx 1.5.6 - 1.7.3.
The problem is fixed in nginx 1.7.4, 1.6.1.
Patch for the problem can be found here:
Created nginx tracking bugs for this issue:
Affects: epel-7 [bug 1126892]
This issue did not affect the versions of nginx as shipped with Red Hat Software Collections 1 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7.
nginx 1.6 is in Fedora 21 / Rawhide. Update to version 1.6.1 was already built by the maintainer.
This is now fixed?
I suppose it's fixed in 1.6.x because there is a stable version (nginx-1.6.2-4.fc21) and
"* Tue Aug 05 2014 Jamie Nguyen <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 1:1.6.1-1
- update to upstream release 1.6.1
- (#1126891) CVE-2014-3556: SMTP STARTTLS plaintext injection flaw"
Can we close this issue?
