CVE-2011-4315 nginx: heap overflow in ngx_resolver_copy()
Last modified: 2013-01-23 08:39:10 EST
It was reported  that a heap overflow flaw in nginx's custom DNS resolver was corrected in upstream version 1.0.10 ,. This resolver is most commonly used with the proxy and fastcgi modules, which are not enabled by default. As well, a malicious user would need to be in control of an upstream resolver host, or be able to brute-force the weakly-generated 16-bit transaction identifier, to exploit the flaw.
