 > "Impact:

 >     An integer overflow bug in 32-bit Redis version 4.0 or newer could be
 >     exploited to corrupt the heap and potentially result with remote code
 >     execution.

 >     Redis 4.0 or newer uses a configurable limit for the maximum supported
 >     bulk input size. By default, it is 512MB which is a safe value for all
 >     platforms.

 >     If the limit is significantly increased, receiving a large request from
 >     a client may trigger several integer overflow scenarios, which would
 >     result with buffer overflow and heap corruption. We believe this could
 >     in certain conditions be exploited for remote code execution.

 >     By default, authenticated Redis users have access to all configuration
 >     parameters and can therefore use the “CONFIG SET proto-max-bulk-len” to
 >     change the safe default, making the system vulnerable.

 >     This problem only affects 32-bit Redis (on a 32-bit system, or as a
 >     32-bit executable running on a 64-bit system).

 > Patches

 >     The problem is fixed in version 6.2, and the fix is back ported to
 >     6.0.11 and 5.0.11. Make sure you use one of these versions if you're
 >     running 32-bit Redis.

 > - For 2020.11.x a bump to 6.0.11 or later is needed (e.g. backport commit cbd5f7e3a9331).
 > - For 2021.02, 6.0.12 is used which already contains the fix.

Committed to 2020.02.x after updating to 5.0.12 as pointed out by
Titouan, thanks.
