3. Description:

The qs module for Node.js is a querystring parser that supports nesting and
arrays with a depth limit.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
rh-nodejs6-nodejs-qs (6.2.3). (BZ#1485934)

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that ljharb's qs module for Node.js did not properly parse
query strings. An attacker could send a specially crafted query that
overwrites the resulting object's prototype properties (such as toString()
or hasOwnProperty()), resulting in a denial of service when the overwritten
function would be executed. (CVE-2017-1000048)
