Bug Description

Binary package hint: nginx

According to the changelog, the nginx package has not been patched against the latest vulnerabilities in any release. One if these appears to be the SSL reset vulnerability found late last year.

Please see the nginx security updates page at http://nginx.org/en/security_advisories.html . They are the two most recent bugs on the top of the page.

Thanks!
