Synopsis
========

A buffer overflow in HAProxy might allow an attacker to execute
arbitrary code.

Background
==========

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

Affected packages
=================

     -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
   1  net-proxy/haproxy            < 2.1.4             >= 2.0.13:0/2.0
                                                              >= 2.1.4

Description
===========

It was discovered that HAProxy incorrectly handled certain HTTP/2
headers.

Impact
======

A remote attacker, by sending a specially crafted HTTP/2 request, could
possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, or
cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

Disable HTTP/2 support.

Resolution
==========

All HAProxy 2.0.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/haproxy-2.0.13:0/2.0"

All other HAProxy users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/haproxy-2.1.4"
