medium Nessus Plugin ID 66663
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HAProxy handled pipelined HTTP requests. A remote attacker could send pipelined HTTP requests that would cause HAProxy to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running HAProxy. This issue only affected systems using all of the following combined configuration options: HTTP keep alive enabled, HTTP keywords in TCP inspection rules, and request appending rules. (CVE-2013-1912)

Solution

Update the affected haproxy and / or haproxy-debuginfo packages.
