Red Hat Product Security has rated this issue as having Low security impact. Additionally nodejs-hawk is only present as a BuildRequires dependency in the nodejs-request package, the actual hawk functionality is not used in OpenShift Enterprise 3. This issue is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates.
