Scientific Linux Security Update : haproxy on SL6.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 69166


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


A flaw was found in the way HAProxy handled requests when the proxy's configuration ('/etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg') had certain rules that use the hdr_ip criterion. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash HAProxy instances that use the affected configuration. (CVE-2013-2175)


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