Today we are releasing updates to NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus in response to the recent discovery of vulnerabilities in many implementations of HTTP/2. We strongly recommend upgrading all systems that have HTTP/2 enabled.

We have addressed these vulnerabilities, and added other HTTP/2 security safeguards, in the following NGINX versions:
- NGINX 1.16.1 (stable)
- NGINX 1.17.3 (mainline)
- NGINX Plus R18 P1
