Reducing the severity of the flaw down to Medium : Red Hat Enterprise Linux comes with a firewall enabled by default, blocking this port on untrusted interfaces.
* On any version :
Ensure the firewall prevents access to port 5858 on untrusted interfaces.
* On nodejs 6 :
To enforce the debug on a specific interface:
$ node --debug=localhost
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.
The current nodejs releaase in RHOAR 10 rhoar-nodejs10-10.16.0-1.el7 has been rebased and includes these fixes. Hence not affected
