High Nessus Plugin ID 119982

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update brings the new upstream nodejs LTS version 4.6.0, fixing bugs and security issues :

- Nodejs embedded openssl version update

+ upgrade to 1.0.2j (CVE-2016-6304, CVE-2016-2183, CVE-2016-2178, CVE-2016-6306, CVE-2016-7052)

+ remove support for dynamic 3rd party engine modules

- http: Properly validate for allowable characters in input user data.
This introduces a new case where throw may occur when configuring HTTP responses, users should already be adopting try/catch here.
(CVE-2016-5325, bsc#985201)

- tls: properly validate wildcard certificates (CVE-2016-7099, bsc#1001652)

- buffer: Zero-fill excess bytes in new Buffer objects created with Buffer.concat()

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
