Node.js multiple vulnerabilities (March 2018 Security Releases).

high Nessus Plugin ID 118933
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

Node.js - JavaScript run-time environment is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Node.js installed on the remote host is 4.x prior to 4.9.0, 6.x prior to 6.14.0, 8.x prior to 8.11.0 or 9.x prior to 9.10.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade Node.js to a recommended by vendor version or above.
