Description

Multiple integer overflows in the http_request_forward_body function in proto_http.c in HAProxy 1.5-dev23 before 1.5.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a large stream of data, which triggers a buffer overflow and an out-of-bounds read.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
