Description Laura Pardo 2018-12-19 19:37:24 UTC
A flaw was found in Node.js before 6.15.0 and 8.14.0. An HTTP request splitting. If Node.js can be convinced to use unsanitized user-provided Unicode data for the `path` option of an HTTP request, then data can be provided which will trigger a second, unexpected, and user-defined HTTP request to made to the same server.

Comment 6 Sam Fowler 2019-06-13 07:17:49 UTC

The nodejs RPMs shipped in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) versions 3.6 through 3.10 are vulnerable to this flaw because they contain the affected code. Later versions of OCP used nodejs RPMs delivered from Red Hat Software Collections and Red Hat Enterprise Linux channels.
