Hi,

HAProxy is fine and can protect your Apache.
Have a look at this page, you'll find some HAProxy configuration example:

Basically, removing the malformed Range header is easy to do.
Usually, the same source IP address will also try to open a lot of connections.
HAProxy can also help you to slowdown this kind of attack, since they
are not legitimate traffic, you don't want them to hit too much you
web servers.

Good luck.
