An out-of-bounds access vulnerability in Node.js:

An additional bug exists in Node.js, all versions of v4.x and v5.x, whereby an attacker may be able to trigger an out-of-bounds access and/or denial of service if user-supplied JavaScript can be executed by an application, but only under circumstances where an attacker may cause user-supplied JavaScript to be executed within a Node.js application.

Full details of this vulnerability are embargoed until new releases are available on Wednesday the 2nd of December 2015, UTC (Tuesday the 1st of December US time).

The versions reported as vulnerable (4.x and 5.x) are not shipped in any Red Hat product. This bug will be updated with further information when more details are available.
