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

Philipp Jeitner and Haya Shulman discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in libspf2, a library for validating mail senders with SPF, which could result in denial of service, or potentially execution of arbitrary code when processing a specially crafted SPF record.
