Subject: CVE Request: nginx fix for malformed HTTP responses from upstream servers


The nginx team has released stable version 1.0.14, and development
version 1.1.17 of nginx web server, which include a fix for malformed
HTTP responses from upstream servers:

Without this fix contents of previously freed memory might be sent to
a client if an upstream server returned specially crafted response,
potentially resulting in sensitive information leak.

Patch which can be applied to the earlier versions of nginx is here:

Thanks to Matthew Daley for spotting this one.
