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

High Nessus Plugin ID 118957

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Node.js installed on the remote host is 6.x prior to 6.14.3, 8.x prior to 8.11.3, 9.x prior to 9.11.2 or 10.x prior to 10.4.1.
It, therefore, is 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.
