Fedora 20 : nodejs-qs-0.6.6-3.fc20 (2014-11376)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 78048


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


The qs module has the ability to create sparse arrays during parsing.
By specifying a high index it is possible to create a large array that will eventually take up all the allocated memory of the running process, resulting in a crash.

More information:

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.


Update the affected nodejs-qs package.
