Description

This update for nodejs8 to version 8.11.4 fixes the following issues :

Security issues fixed :

CVE-2018-12115: Fixed an out-of-bounds memory write in Buffer that could be used to write to memory outside of a Buffer's memory space buffer (bsc#1105019)

Upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.2p, which fixed :

  • CVE-2018-0732: Client denial-of-service due to large DH parameter (bsc#1097158)

  • ECDSA key extraction via local side-channel

Other changes made: Recommend same major version npm package (bsc#1097748)

Fix parallel/test-tls-passphrase.js test to continue to function with older versions of OpenSSL library.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
