                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Web Scripting 15-SP2

   An update that fixes three vulnerabilities is now available.


   This update for nodejs14 fixes the following issues:

   - New upstream LTS version 14.15.4:
     * CVE-2020-8265: use-after-free in TLSWrap (High) bug in TLS
       implementation. When writing to a TLS enabled socket,
       node::StreamBase::Write calls node::TLSWrap::DoWrite with a freshly
       allocated WriteWrap object as first argument. If the DoWrite method
       does not return an error, this object is passed back to the caller as
       part of a StreamWriteResult structure. This may be exploited to
       corrupt memory leading to a Denial of Service or potentially other
       exploits (bsc#1180553)
     * CVE-2020-8287: HTTP Request Smuggling allow two copies of a header
       field in a http request. For example, two Transfer-Encoding header
       fields. In this case Node.js identifies the first header field and
       ignores the second. This can lead to HTTP Request Smuggling
       ( (bsc#1180554)

   - New upstream LTS version 14.15.3:
     * deps:
       + upgrade npm to 6.14.9
       + update acorn to v8.0.4
     * http2: check write not scheduled in scope destructor
     * stream: fix regression on duplex end

   - New upstream LTS version 14.15.1:
     * deps: Denial of Service through DNS request (High). A Node.js
       application that allows an attacker to trigger a DNS request for a
       host of their choice could trigger a Denial of Service by getting the
       application to resolve a DNS record with a larger number of responses
       (bsc#1178882, CVE-2020-8277)
