Package        : nginx
Vulnerability  : information leak
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-4929
Debian Bug     : 700426

Juliano Rizzo and Thai Duong discovered a weakness in the TLS/SSL
protocol when using compression. This side channel attack, dubbed
'CRIME', allows eavesdroppers to gather information to recover the
original plaintext in the protocol. This update to nginx disables
SSL compression.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7.67-3+squeeze3.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), and unstable distribution (sid),
this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.16-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your nginx packages.
