Node.js reports:

    Updates are now available for all active Node.js release lines for the
    following issues.

    HTTP request smuggling using malformed Transfer-Encoding header (Critical)
    (CVE-2019-15605)HTTP request smuggling using malformed Transfer-Encoding
    header (Critical) (CVE-2019-15605)

    Affected Node.js versions can be exploited to perform HTTP desync attacks
    and deliver malicious payloads to unsuspecting users. The payloads can be
    crafted by an attacker to hijack user sessions, poison cookies, perform
    clickjacking, and a multitude of other attacks depending on the
    architecture of the underlying system.

    HTTP header values do not have trailing OWS trimmed (High) (CVE-2019-15606)

    Optional whitespace should be trimmed from HTTP header values. Its presence
    may allow attackers to bypass security checks based on HTTP header values.

    Remotely trigger an assertion on a TLS server with a malformed certificate
    string (High) (CVE-2019-15604)

    Connecting to a NodeJS TLS server with a client certificate that has a type
    19 string in its subjectAltName will crash the TLS server if it tries to
    read the peer certificate.

    Strict HTTP header parsing (None)

    Increase the strictness of HTTP header parsing. There are no known
    vulnerabilities addressed, but lax HTTP parsing has historically been a
    source of problems. Some commonly used sites are known to generate invalid
    HTTP headers, a --insecure-http-parser CLI option or insecureHTTPParser
    http option can be used if necessary for interoperability, but is not
