New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdated nodejs package fixes security vulnerabilities :
A memory corruption vulnerability, which results in a denial-of-service, was identified in the versions of V8 that ship with Node.js 0.8 and 0.10. In certain circumstances, a particularly deep recursive workload that may trigger a GC and receive an interrupt may overflow the stack and result in a segmentation fault. For instance, if your work load involves successive JSON.parse calls and the parsed objects are significantly deep, you may experience the process aborting while parsing (CVE-2014-5256).
Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Google V8 before 188.8.131.52, as used in Node.js before 0.10.31, allow attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have other impact via unknown vectors (CVE-2013-6668).
The nodejs package has been updated to version 0.10.33 to fix these issues as well as several other bugs.
SolutionUpdate the affected nodejs package.
