nginx vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 17.04
- Ubuntu 16.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


nginx could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description:
- nginx: small, powerful, scalable web/proxy server


It was discovered that an integer overflow existed in the range
filter feature of nginx. A remote attacker could use this to expose
sensitive information.
