CVE-2016-7099

Status Candidate

Overview

The tls.checkServerIdentity function in Node.js 0.10.x before 0.10.47, 0.12.x before 0.12.16, 4.x before 4.6.0, and 6.x before 6.7.0 does not properly handle wildcards in name fields of X.509 certificates, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers via a crafted certificate.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0002-01
Posted Jan 3, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0002-01 - Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices. The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version: rh-nodejs4-nodejs, rh-nodejs4-http-parser. Security Fix: It was found that Node.js' tls.checkServerIdentity() function did not properly validate server certificates containing wildcards. A malicious TLS server could use this flaw to get a specially crafted certificate accepted by a Node.js TLS client.
