Details

It was discovered that nginx incorrectly handled certain memory operations in
the ngx_http_mp4_module module. A local attacker could possibly use this issue
with a specially crafted mp4 file to cause nginx to crash, stop responding, or
access arbitrary memory. (CVE-2022-41741, CVE-2022-41742)
