   An update that fixes three vulnerabilities is now available.


   This update for nodejs10 fixes the following issues:

   - New upstream LTS version 10.23.1:
     * 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)
     * CVE-2020-1971: OpenSSL - EDIPARTYNAME NULL pointer de-reference (High)
       This is a vulnerability in OpenSSL which may be exploited through
       Node.js. (bsc#1179491)

   - New upstream LTS version 10.23.0:
     * deps: upgrade npm to 6.14.8
     * n-api:
       + create N-API version 7
       + expose napi_build_version variable
