Default NGINX patches major security flaw

From http://h-online.com/-1858438

The NGINX developers have released an updated stable version 1.4.1 and development version 1.5.0 to fix a major security flaw in the popular open source web server application. A stack-based buffer overflow is reported to occur in worker processes when handling specially crafted requests – the overflow could be exploited in such a way that it could lead to arbitrary code execution.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
