Description

Three vulnerabilities were discovered in Nginx, a high-performance web and reverse proxy server, which could result in denial of service in processing HTTP/2 (via excessive memory/CPU usage) or server memory disclosure in the ngx_http_mp4_module module (used for server-side MP4 streaming).
