haproxy vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.04
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

HAProxy could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description:
- haproxy: fast and reliable load balancing reverse proxy

Details:

Ori Hollander discovered that HAProxy incorrectly handled HTTP header name
length encoding. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to inject
a duplicate content-length header and perform request smuggling attacks.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 21.04:
  haproxy                         2.2.9-1ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  haproxy                         2.0.13-2ubuntu0.3

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
