Fedora 21 : nodejs-0.10.32-1.fc21 / v8-3.14.5.10-14.fc21 (2014-11132)

high Nessus Plugin ID 77931
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

This update provides the latest stable version of Node.js and corresponding backports to the v8 package.

This update resolves CVE-2013-6668, which has only a minor impact since Node.js is not typically used to execute untrusted JavaScript.
For more information on the fixed vulnerability, please see the CVE bugs listed below.

Changes in this update include :

- v8: fix a crash introduced by previous release (Fedor Indutny)

- crypto: use domains for any callback-taking method (Chris Dickinson)

- http: do not send `0rnrn` in TE HEAD responses (Fedor Indutny)

- querystring: fix unescape override (Tristan Berger)

- url: Add support for RFC 3490 separators (Mathias Bynens)

- v8: backport CVE-2013-6668

- cluster: disconnect should not be synchronous (Sam Roberts)

- fs: fix fs.readFileSync fd leak when get RangeError (Jackson Tian)

- stream: fix Readable.wrap objectMode falsy values (James Halliday)

- timers: fix timers with non-integer delay hanging.
(Julien Gilli)

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

Solution

Update the affected nodejs and / or v8 packages.
