Description Pim Rupert 2016-01-27 14:12:23 UTC
Description of problem:
Current version of Nginx 1.6.3 in EPEL6 is out-dated and contains vulnerabilities.

See: http://nginx.org/en/security_advisories.html

Solution: rebase to Nginx 1.8.1

Comment 1 Pim Rupert 2016-01-27 14:20:35 UTC
Correction, I meant to say that the current version in EPEL6 is 1.0.15. I still think a rebase to 1.8 is useful to avoid the vulnerabilities.

Comment 2 Jamie Nguyen 2016-01-27 14:40:52 UTC
This is a real problem that doesn't have a perfect solution. Unfortunately, packaging policy is rather strict for "stable" distributions like RHEL and Debian. Major version updates are strongly discouraged.

However, one might be justified in pushing a major version update if there are unfixed security issues that cannot be backported. Backporting the 6 commits that fix the 3 CVEs from yesterday is proving difficult due to the ancient version of Nginx, and may be beyond my expertise. I will give it another shot, but if I'm unable to backport then I may post to ML for discussion about a major version update.

Comment 4 David A. Cafaro 2016-03-16 13:21:18 UTC
I read up on the thread, are you still moving forward with the update to latest release path?  (Which I support)
