Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102564

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)
