Synopsis

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

Description

This update for nodejs14 fixes the following issues :

New upstream LTS version 14.15.4 :

- CVE-2020-8265: use-after-free in TLSWrap (High) bug in TLS implementation. When writing to a TLS enabled socket, node::StreamBase::Write calls node::TLSWrap::DoWrite with a freshly allocated WriteWrap object as first argument. If the DoWrite method does not return an error, this object is passed back to the caller as part of a StreamWriteResult structure. This may be exploited to corrupt memory leading to a Denial of Service or potentially other exploits (bsc#1180553)

- CVE-2020-8287: HTTP Request Smuggling allow two copies of a header field in a http request. For example, two Transfer-Encoding header fields. In this case Node.js identifies the first header field and ignores the second. This can lead to HTTP Request Smuggling (https://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/444.html).
(bsc#1180554)

New upstream LTS version 14.15.3 :

- deps :

+ upgrade npm to 6.14.9

+ update acorn to v8.0.4

- http2: check write not scheduled in scope destructor

- stream: fix regression on duplex end

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.
