This is a bugfix release of NGINX Unit that eliminates a security flaw. All versions of Unit from 0.3 to 1.7 are affected.
Everybody is strongly advised to update to a new version.
Changes with Unit 1.7.1 07 Feb 2019
*) Security: a heap memory buffer overflow might have been caused in the router process by a specially crafted request, potentially resulting in a segmentation fault or other unspecified behavior (CVE-2019-7401).
*) Bugfix: install of Go module failed without prior building of Unit daemon; the bug had appeared in 1.7.
Release of Unit 1.8 with support for internal request routing and an experimental Java module is planned for end of February.
