"It was discovered that there was a 'Cross Protocol Scripting' attack
in the Redis key-value database.

'POST' and 'Host:' command strings (which are not valid in the Redis
protocol) were not immediately rejected when an attacker makes HTTP
request to the Redis TCP port.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this issue has been fixed in redis version
2:2.4.14-1+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your redis packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description
block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted
to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without
introducing additional issues."
