Re: nginx 0day exploit for nginx + fastcgi PHP

January 26, 2011 11:16PM
it's not a vulnerability with nginx, it's a widespread configuration
misstep teamed up with what I consider to be somewhat lazy application
code (it should check filetype and/or convert and normalize it to site
specifications and/or strip extra stuff inside of it ...)

there's a couple different ways to address it with nginx
configuration, and there is a way to address it in application code
too.

doesn't this fix basically say "if there is a period in the path
before the path ends with PHP throw a 403" - because then
/my.directory/foo.php would be denied, right?

location ~ \..*/.*\.php$ {
return 403;
}
