Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : nodejs (MDVSA-2015:228)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 83274
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdated nodejs package fixes security vulnerability :
It was found that libuv does not call setgoups before calling setuid/setgid. This may potentially allow an attacker to gain elevated privileges (CVE-2015-0278).
The libuv library is bundled with nodejs, and a fixed version of libuv is included with nodejs as of version 0.10.37. The nodejs package has been updated to version 0.10.38 to fix this issue, as well as several other bugs.
SolutionUpdate the affected nodejs package.
