- nodejs: Use-after-free on close http2 on stream canceling (CVE-2021-22930)

- Node.js before 16.6.0, 14.17.4, and 12.22.4 is vulnerable to Remote Code Execution, XSS, Application crashes due to missing input validation of host names returned by Domain Name Servers in Node.js dns library which can lead to output of wrong hostnames (leading to Domain Hijacking) and injection vulnerabilities in applications using the library. (CVE-2021-22931)

- If the Node.js https API was used incorrectly and undefined was in passed for the rejectUnauthorized parameter, no error was returned and connections to servers with an expired certificate would have been accepted. (CVE-2021-22939)
