Description Vincent Danen 2012-04-12 14:14:37 EDT
A flaw was reported [1] in the nginx standard mp4 pseudo-streaming module.  A specially-crafted mp4 file could allow for the overwriting of memory locations in a worker process if ngx_http_mp4_module were used.  This could potentially result in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the unprivileged nginx user.

This has been corrected in upstream 1.0.15 and 1.1.9 versions, and only affected versions newer than 1.1.3 and 1.0.7 when built with the ngx_http_mp4_module and had the "mp4" directive set in the configuration file.  A patch to correct this flaw is available as well [2].
