SUSE Security Update: Security update for nodejs14


Announcement ID:   SUSE-SU-2021:0061-1
Rating:            moderate
References:        #1178882 #1180553 #1180554
Cross-References:  CVE-2020-8265 CVE-2020-8277 CVE-2020-8287
Affected Products:
                   SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Web Scripting 15-SP2

An update that fixes three vulnerabilities is now available.


This update for nodejs14 fixes the following issues:

  o New upstream LTS version 14.15.4: * CVE-2020-8265: use-after-free in
    TLSWrap (High) bug in TLS implementation. When writing to a TLS enabled
    socket, node::StreamBase::Write calls node::TLSWrap::DoWrite with a freshly
    allocated WriteWrap object as first argument. If the DoWrite method does
    not return an error, this object is passed back to the caller as part of a
    StreamWriteResult structure. This may be exploited to corrupt memory
    leading to a Denial of Service or potentially other exploits (bsc#1180553)
    * CVE-2020-8287: HTTP Request Smuggling allow two copies of a header field
    in a http request. For example, two Transfer-Encoding header fields. In
    this case Node.js identifies the first header field and ignores the second.
    This can lead to HTTP Request Smuggling (https://cwe.mitre.org/data/
    definitions/444.html). (bsc#1180554)

  o New upstream LTS version 14.15.3: * deps:
    + upgrade npm to 6.14.9 + update acorn to v8.0.4 * http2: check write not
    scheduled in scope destructor * stream: fix regression on duplex end

  o New upstream LTS version 14.15.1: * deps: Denial of Service through DNS
    request (High). A Node.js application that allows an attacker to trigger a
    DNS request for a host of their choice could trigger a Denial of Service by
    getting the application to resolve a DNS record with a larger number of
    responses (bsc#1178882, CVE-2020-8277)
