The vulnerability could be easily exploited by attackers who have managed to compromise a web application hosted on Nginx server and gained access to www-data account to escalate their privileges to root without any admin interaction thanks to cron.daily. Vulnerability fixed in the following packages: Nginx 1.6.2-5+deb8u3 package on Debian Nginx 1.10.0-0ubuntu0.16.04.3 on Ubuntu (16.04 LTS) The up-to-date advisory can be found at: https://legalhackers.com/advisories/Nginx-Exploit-Deb-Root-PrivEsc-CVE-2016-1247.html For updates, follow: https://twitter.com/dawid_golunski Copy of the exploit is also attached to this message.
