DLA-2503-1 node-ini -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 21 Dec 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-7788.
- More information:
It was discovered that there was an issue in node-ini, a .ini format parser and serializer for Node.js, where an application could be exploited by a malicious input file.
This affects the package ini before 1.3.6. If an attacker submits a malicious INI file to an application that parses it with ini.parse, they will pollute the prototype on the application. This can be exploited further depending on the context.
For Debian 9
Stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.0-1+deb9u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your node-ini packages.
