    Hello!

    A bug in the experimental SPDY implementation in nginx 1.5.10 was found,
    which might allow an attacker to corrupt worker process memory by using
    a specially crafted request, potentially resulting in arbitrary code
    execution (CVE-2014-0088).

    The problem only affects nginx 1.5.10 on 32-bit platforms, compiled with
    the ngx_http_spdy_module module (which is not compiled by default), if
    the "spdy" option of the "listen" directive is used in a configuration
    file.

    The problem is fixed in nginx 1.5.11.

    Patch for the problem can be found here:
