- Date Reported:
- 17 Aug 2021
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2021-39240, CVE-2021-39241, CVE-2021-39242.
- More information:
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in HAProxy, a fast and reliable load balancing reverse proxy, which can result in HTTP request smuggling. By carefully crafting HTTP/2 requests, it is possible to smuggle another HTTP request to the backend selected by the HTTP/2 request. With certain configurations, it allows an attacker to send an HTTP request to a backend, circumventing the backend selection logic.
Known workarounds are to disable HTTP/2 and set "tune.h2.max-concurrent-streams" to 0 in the
global tune.h2.max-concurrent-streams 0
For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in version 2.2.9-2+deb11u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your haproxy packages.
