nginx (1.4.6-1ubuntu3.6) trusty-security; urgency=medium

  [ Christos Trochalakis ]
  * debian/nginx-common.postinst:
    + Secure log file handling (owner & permissions) against privilege
      escalation attacks. /var/log/nginx is now owned by root:adm.
      Thanks Dawid Golunski (http://legalhackers.com) for the report.
      Changing /var/log/nginx permissions effectively reopens #701112,
      since log files can be world-readable. This is a trade-off until
      a better log opening solution is implemented upstream (trac:376).
