Synopsis
=======
A buffer overflow in HAProxy may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=========
HAProxy is a TCP/HTTP reverse proxy for high availability environments.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-proxy/haproxy            < 1.4.21                  >= 1.4.21

Description
==========
A boundary error in HAProxy could cause a buffer overflow when header
rewriting is enabled and the configuration sets global.tune.bufsize to
a value greater than the default (16384 bytes).

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All HAProxy users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/haproxy-1.4.21"

References
=========
