Description Sam Fowler 2018-11-21 05:47:03 UTC
keepalived before version 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer overflow when parsing HTTP status codes resulting in DoS or possibly unspecified other impact, because extract_status_code in lib/html.c has no validation of the status code and instead writes an unlimited amount of data to the heap.
