Comment 5 Mark Cooper 2020-03-02 00:55:27 UTC
OpenShift ServiceMesh is packaging a vulnerable version of nodejs url-parse (1.4.4) in the container:
    - distributed-tracing/jaeger-rhel7-operator

Also found in the kiali rpm.

The grafana component included within ServiceMesh itself, also includes url-parse but is version 1.4.7 and is not vulnerable.
