nginx (1.10.0-0ubuntu0.16.04.3) xenial-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).
  * debian/control:
    Don't allow building against liblua5.1-0-dev on architectures
    that libluajit is available.
