Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:228 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/


Package : nodejs Date : May 6, 2015 Affected: Business Server 2.0


Problem Description:

Updated nodejs package fixes security vulnerability:

It was found that libuv does not call setgoups before calling setuid/setgid. This may potentially allow an attacker to gain elevated privileges (CVE-2015-0278).

The libuv library is bundled with nodejs, and a fixed version of libuv is included with nodejs as of version 0.10.37. The nodejs package has been updated to version 0.10.38 to fix this issue, as well as several other bugs.
