Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description

Updated node.js packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise 2.1.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat is the company's cloud computing Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution designed for on-premise or private cloud deployments.

Node.js is a software development platform for building fast and scalable network applications in the JavaScript programming language.

A flaw was found in the way SSL 3.0 handled padding bytes when decrypting messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. This flaw allows a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacker to decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as 256 tries if they are able to force a victim application to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL 3.0 connections.
(CVE-2014-3566)

All OpenShift Enterprise users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this issue.

Solution

Update the affected openshift-origin-node-proxy package.
