Scientific Linux Security Update : haproxy on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66663
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA 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)
SolutionUpdate the affected haproxy and / or haproxy-debuginfo packages.
