Updated nodejs package fixes security vulnerabilitiesPublication date: 09 Dec 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 4
CVE: CVE-2014-5256 , CVE-2013-6668
Updated 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.
