The Federal Office for Security in Information Technology (BSI) published an update on January 19, 2024 to a critical security hole with several vulnerabilities for Node.js that became known on October 16, 2023. The security vulnerability affects the operating systems UNIX, Linux and Windows as well as the products Debian Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora Linux, SUSE Linux, Oracle Linux, IBM Business Automation Workflow, Open Source Node.js, Jenkins Jenkins and IBM App Connect Enterprise .

The latest manufacturer recommendations regarding updates, workarounds and security patches for this vulnerability can be found here: IBM Security Bulletin 7108824 (As of January 18, 2024). Other useful resources are listed later in this article.

Node.js Security Advisory – Critical Risk

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

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is used to assess the vulnerability of computer systems. The CVSS standard makes it possible to compare potential or actual security vulnerabilities based on various criteria in order to better prioritize countermeasures. The attributes “none”, “low”, “medium”, “high” and “critical” are used to determine the severity levels of a vulnerability. The Base Score evaluates the requirements for an attack (including authentication, complexity, privileges, user interaction) and its consequences. With the temporal score, framework conditions that can change over time are taken into account in the evaluation. According to the CVSS, the threat of the vulnerability discussed here is classified as “critical” with a base score of 9.8.

General measures for dealing with IT vulnerabilities

Users of the affected systems should keep them up to date. When security gaps become known, manufacturers are required to fix them as quickly as possible by developing a patch or a workaround. If new security updates become available, install them promptly. For information, consult the sources listed in the next section. These often contain further information about the latest version of the software in question as well as the availability of security patches or information about workarounds. If you have any further questions or uncertainties, please contact your responsible administrator. IT security managers should regularly check the sources mentioned to see whether a new security update is available.
