Description Vincent Danen 2013-02-21 22:33:24 UTC
Agostino Sarubbo reported on the oss-security mailing list [1] that, on Gentoo, /var/log/nginx is world-accessible and the log files inside the directory are world-readable.  This could allow an unprivileged user to read the log files.

Checking on Fedora and EPEL, /var/log/nginx is provided with 0755 permissions.  These should be reduced to 0700 permissions, like /var/log/httpd.
