I am setting up a new ubuntu 18.04 server with ODK Sync Endpoint (on a VM). The server isn’t completely set up yet, but already our organization (Penn State University) during a security scan flagged a vulnerability in nginx. It looks like the version I just installed is 1.13.12 – but the current version is 1.17, and 1.16 fixed a number of vulnerabilities.
My questions are: will I encounter any problems if I upgrade nginx? And if not, would you please consider upgrading it in the git repository so that other people don’t encounter this same issue?
