Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201406-20 (nginx: Arbitrary code execution)

A bug in the SPDY implementation in nginx was found which might cause a
  heap memory buffer overflow in a worker process by using a specially
  crafted request. The SPDY implementation is not enabled in default
  configurations.

Impact :

A remote attacker could cause execution of arbitrary code by using a
  specially crafted request.

Workaround :

Disable the spdy module in NGINX_MODULES_HTTP.
