Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0868-01 - HAProxy provides high availability, load balancing, and proxying for TCP and HTTP-based applications. 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.
