high Nessus Plugin ID 173152


The remote Amazon Linux 2023 host is missing a security update.


It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALAS2023-2023-128 advisory.

- This affects versions of the package http-cache-semantics before 4.1.1. The issue can be exploited via malicious request header values sent to a server, when that server reads the cache policy from the request using this library. (CVE-2022-25881)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Run 'dnf update nodejs --releasever=2023.0.20230315' to update your system.
