Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
An HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS) vulnerability was found in the llhttp library, used by Node.JS. Spaces as part of the header names were accepted as valid. In situations where HTTP conversations are being proxied (such as proxy, reverse-proxy, load-balancer), an attacker can use this flaw to inject arbitrary messages through the proxy. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality and integrity.

Description Cedric Buissart 2021-10-14 11:56:23 UTC
The http parser accepts requests with a space (SP) right after the header name before the colon. This can lead to HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS).

The fix for this is included in llhttp v2.1.4 and v6.0.6.

Impacts:

    All versions of the 16.x, 14.x, and 12.x releases lines.

Will there be a fix for NodeJS 12?

(In reply to Laurie Morse from comment #17)
> Will there be a fix for NodeJS 12?

This CVE is rated as LOW, so there are not immediate plans to fix this. But it is quite likely we will be updating Node.js 12 around its EOL (as we did for Node.js 8 / 10), which should include the fix in the worst case.

Please contact Red Hat support should you need to help prioritize the fix.
