Node.js: IT vulnerability with high risk!  Multiple vulnerabilities reported

The BSI has published a current IT security notice for Node.js. Several vulnerabilities have been identified. You can find out more about the affected operating systems and products as well as CVE numbers here on news.de.

The Federal Office for Security in der Informationstechnik (BSI) published an update on March 17th, 2023 to a security gap with several vulnerabilities for Node.js that became known on January 25th, 2022. The Linux operating system and the products Debian Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, HCL Domino, SUSE Linux, IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus, Oracle Linux, IBM Spectrum Protect, HCL BigFix, Open Source Node.js and JFrog Artifactory are affected by the vulnerability.

The latest manufacturer recommendations regarding updates, workarounds and security patches for this vulnerability can be found here: IBM Security Bulletin 6956237 (Status: 03/17/2023). Other useful links are listed later in this article.

Multiple vulnerabilities for Node.js – risk: high

Risk level: 4 (high)
CVSS Base Score: 9,8
CVSS Temporal Score: 8,5
Remoteangriff: Ja

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is used to assess the severity of vulnerabilities in computer systems. The CVSS standard makes it possible to compare potential or actual security vulnerabilities based on various metrics in order to better prioritize countermeasures. The attributes “none”, “low”, “medium”, “high” and “critical” are used for the severity of a vulnerability. The base score assesses the prerequisites for an attack (including authentication, complexity, privileges, user interaction) and its consequences. The Temporal Score also takes into account changes over time with regard to the risk situation. According to the CVSS, the risk of the current vulnerability is rated as “high” with a base score of 9.8.

Node.js Bug: Effects of exploiting the known vulnerabilities

Node.js is a platform for developing network applications.

A remote, anonymous attacker can exploit multiple vulnerabilities in Node.js to perform a denial of service attack or to cause code execution.

The vulnerability is identified with the unique CVE identification numbers (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) CVE-2021-3807 and CVE-2021-3918 traded.

General measures for dealing with IT security gaps

  1. Users of the affected systems should keep them up to date. When security gaps become known, manufacturers are required to remedy them as quickly as possible by developing a patch or a workaround. If security patches are available, install them promptly.

  2. For information, consult the sources listed in the next section. These often contain further information on the latest version of the software in question and the availability of security patches or tips on workarounds.

  3. If you have any further questions or are uncertain, please contact your responsible administrator. IT security officers should regularly check when the IT security warning affected manufacturers makes a new security update available.
