Comment 3 Kurt Seifried 2015-12-22 22:03:00 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of nodejs as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Software Collections version 2, Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Openshift Enterprise and Openshift Online as they do not include the vulnerable version of nodejs.
