Nginx Root Privilege Escalation
Posted Nov 16, 2016
Authored by Dawid Golunski

Nginx web server packaging on Debian-based distributions such as Debian or Ubuntu was found to create log directories with insecure permissions which can be exploited by malicious local attackers to escalate their privileges from nginx/web user (www-data) to root. The vulnerability could be easily exploited by attackers who have managed to compromise a web application hosted on Nginx server and gained access to www-data account as it would allow them to escalate their privileges further to root access and fully compromise the system. This is fixed in 1.6.2-5+deb8u3 package on Debian and 1.10.0-0ubuntu0.16.04.3 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. UPDATE 2017/01/13 - nginx packages below version 1.10.2-r3 on Gentoo are also affected.

Debian Security Advisory 3701-1
Posted Oct 26, 2016
Authored by Debian | Site debian.org

Debian Linux Security Advisory 3701-1 - Dawid Golunski reported the nginx web server packages in Debian suffered from a privilege escalation vulnerability (www-data to root) due to the way log files are handled. This security update changes ownership of the /var/log/nginx directory root. In addition, /var/log/nginx has to be made accessible to local users, and local users may be able to read the log files themselves local until the next logrotate invocation.
