Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2908-01
Posted Oct 17, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2908-01 - Node.js is a software development platform for building fast and scalable network applications in the JavaScript programming language. The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: rh-nodejs6-nodejs. Security Fix: It was found that Node.js was using a non-randomized seed when populating hash tables. An attacker, able to supply a large number of inputs, could send specially crafted entries to the Node.js application, maximizing hash collisions to trigger an excessive amount of CPU usage, resulting in a denial of service.
