It may take a day or so for new nginx vulnerabilities to show up in the stats or in the list of recent security vulnerabilties. Additionally vulnerabilities may be tagged under a different product or component name.

Recent nginx Security Vulnerabilities

NGINX before 1.13.6 has a buffer overflow for years

CVE-2017-20005 9.8 - Critical - June 06, 2021

NGINX before 1.13.6 has a buffer overflow for years that exceed four digits, as demonstrated by a file with a modification date in 1969 that causes an integer overflow (or a false modification date far in the future), when encountered by the autoindex module.

Integer Overflow or Wraparound

A security issue in nginx resolver was identified, which might

CVE-2021-23017 9.4 - Critical - June 01, 2021

A security issue in nginx resolver was identified, which might allow an attacker who is able to forge UDP packets from the DNS server to cause 1-byte memory overwrite, resulting in worker process crash or potential other impact.

off-by-five

NGINX before 1.17.7, with certain error_page configurations

CVE-2019-20372 5.3 - Medium - January 09, 2020

NGINX before 1.17.7, with certain error_page configurations, allows HTTP request smuggling, as demonstrated by the ability of an attacker to read unauthorized web pages in environments where NGINX is being fronted by a load balancer.

HTTP Request Smuggling

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to window size manipulation and stream prioritization manipulation

CVE-2019-9511 7.5 - High - August 13, 2019

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to window size manipulation and stream prioritization manipulation, potentially leading to a denial of service. The attacker requests a large amount of data from a specified resource over multiple streams. They manipulate window size and stream priority to force the server to queue the data in 1-byte chunks. Depending on how efficiently this data is queued, this can consume excess CPU, memory, or both.

Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to resource loops, potentially leading to a denial of service

CVE-2019-9513 7.5 - High - August 13, 2019

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to resource loops, potentially leading to a denial of service. The attacker creates multiple request streams and continually shuffles the priority of the streams in a way that causes substantial churn to the priority tree. This can consume excess CPU.

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to a header leak, potentially leading to a denial of service

CVE-2019-9516 6.5 - Medium - August 13, 2019

Some HTTP/2 implementations are vulnerable to a header leak, potentially leading to a denial of service. The attacker sends a stream of headers with a 0-length header name and 0-length header value, optionally Huffman encoded into 1-byte or greater headers. Some implementations allocate memory for these headers and keep the allocation alive until the session dies. This can consume excess memory.

Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling

nginx before versions 1.15.6 and 1.14.1 has a vulnerability in the implementation of HTTP/2 that can allow for excessive memory consumption

CVE-2018-16843 7.5 - High - November 07, 2018

nginx before versions 1.15.6 and 1.14.1 has a vulnerability in the implementation of HTTP/2 that can allow for excessive memory consumption. This issue affects nginx compiled with the ngx_http_v2_module (not compiled by default) if the 'http2' option of the 'listen' directive is used in a configuration file.

Resource Exhaustion

nginx before versions 1.15.6 and 1.14.1 has a vulnerability in the implementation of HTTP/2 that can allow for excessive CPU usage

CVE-2018-16844 7.5 - High - November 07, 2018

nginx before versions 1.15.6 and 1.14.1 has a vulnerability in the implementation of HTTP/2 that can allow for excessive CPU usage. This issue affects nginx compiled with the ngx_http_v2_module (not compiled by default) if the 'http2' option of the 'listen' directive is used in a configuration file.

Resource Exhaustion

nginx before versions 1.15.6, 1.14.1 has a vulnerability in the ngx_http_mp4_module, which might

CVE-2018-16845 6.1 - Medium - November 07, 2018

nginx before versions 1.15.6, 1.14.1 has a vulnerability in the ngx_http_mp4_module, which might allow an attacker to cause infinite loop in a worker process, cause a worker process crash, or might result in worker process memory disclosure by using a specially crafted mp4 file. The issue only affects nginx if it is built with the ngx_http_mp4_module (the module is not built by default) and the .mp4. directive is used in the configuration file. Further, the attack is only possible if an attacker is able to trigger processing of a specially crafted mp4 file with the ngx_http_mp4_module.

Resource Exhaustion

Nginx versions since 0.5.6 up to and including 1.13.2 are vulnerable to integer overflow vulnerability in nginx range filter module resulting into leak of potentially sensitive information triggered by specially crafted request.

CVE-2017-7529 7.5 - High - July 13, 2017

Nginx versions since 0.5.6 up to and including 1.13.2 are vulnerable to integer overflow vulnerability in nginx range filter module resulting into leak of potentially sensitive information triggered by specially crafted request.

Integer Overflow or Wraparound

The resolver in nginx before 1.8.1 and 1.9.x before 1.9.10 does not properly limit CNAME resolution, which

CVE-2016-0747 5.3 - Medium - February 15, 2016

The resolver in nginx before 1.8.1 and 1.9.x before 1.9.10 does not properly limit CNAME resolution, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (worker process resource consumption) via vectors related to arbitrary name resolution.

Resource Exhaustion

Use-after-free vulnerability in the resolver in nginx 0.6.18 through 1.8.0 and 1.9.x before 1.9.10

CVE-2016-0746 9.8 - Critical - February 15, 2016

Use-after-free vulnerability in the resolver in nginx 0.6.18 through 1.8.0 and 1.9.x before 1.9.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (worker process crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted DNS response related to CNAME response processing.

Dangling pointer

The resolver in nginx before 1.8.1 and 1.9.x before 1.9.10

CVE-2016-0742 7.5 - High - February 15, 2016

The resolver in nginx before 1.8.1 and 1.9.x before 1.9.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and worker process crash) via a crafted UDP DNS response.

NULL Pointer Dereference

nginx 0.7.64 writes data to a log file without sanitizing non-printable characters, which might

CVE-2009-4487 - January 13, 2010

nginx 0.7.64 writes data to a log file without sanitizing non-printable characters, which might allow remote attackers to modify a window's title, or possibly execute arbitrary commands or overwrite files, via an HTTP request containing an escape sequence for a terminal emulator.

Directory traversal vulnerability in src/http/modules/ngx_http_dav_module.c in nginx (aka Engine X) before 0.7.63, and 0.8.x before 0.8.17

CVE-2009-3898 - November 24, 2009

Directory traversal vulnerability in src/http/modules/ngx_http_dav_module.c in nginx (aka Engine X) before 0.7.63, and 0.8.x before 0.8.17, allows remote authenticated users to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) in the Destination HTTP header for the WebDAV (1) COPY or (2) MOVE method.

Directory traversal

src/http/ngx_http_parse.c in nginx (aka Engine X) 0.1.0 through 0.4.14, 0.5.x before 0.5.38, 0.6.x before 0.6.39, 0.7.x before 0.7.62, and 0.8.x before 0.8.14

CVE-2009-3896 - November 24, 2009

src/http/ngx_http_parse.c in nginx (aka Engine X) 0.1.0 through 0.4.14, 0.5.x before 0.5.38, 0.6.x before 0.6.39, 0.7.x before 0.7.62, and 0.8.x before 0.8.14 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and worker process crash) via a long URI.
