Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update for nodejs4 and nodejs6 fixes the following issues :

Security issues fixed :

- CVE-2017-1000381: The c-ares function
ares_parse_naptr_reply() could be triggered to read
memory outside of the given input buffer if the passed
in DNS response packet was crafted in a particular way.
(bsc#1044946)

- CVE-2017-11499: Disable V8 snapshots. The hashseed
embedded in the snapshot is currently the same for all
runs of the binary. This opens node up to collision
attacks which could result in a Denial of Service. We
have temporarily disabled snapshots until a more robust
solution is found. (bsc#1048299)

Non-security fixes :

- GCC 7 compilation fixes for v8 backported and add
missing ICU59 headers (bsc#1041282)
