Description Vincent Danen 2013-05-13 14:53:43 EDT
A similar security issue to CVE-2013-2028 was identified [1] for versions of nginx if proxy_pass to untrusted upstream HTTP servers are used, which could lead to a denial of service or a disclosure of a worker process' memory.

The problem affects nginx 1.1.4 - 1.2.8, 1.3.0 - 1.4.0 and was assigned the name CVE-2013-2070, so only Fedora 18 is affected.
