Amazon Linux AMI : haproxy (ALAS-2013-215)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 70219


The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.


HAProxy 1.4 before 1.4.24 and 1.5 before 1.5-dev19, when configured to use hdr_ip or other 'hdr_*' functions with a negative occurrence count, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (negative array index usage and crash) via an HTTP header with a certain number of values, related to the MAX_HDR_HISTORY variable.


Run 'yum update haproxy' to update your system.
