Description

Tim Dusterhus discovered that HAProxy incorrectly handled certain HTTP/2 headers. An attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code through CRLF injection.

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