More information:

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Node.js, a JavaScript runtime environment, which could result in memory corruption, invalid certificate validation, prototype pollution or command injection.

  • CVE-2021-22930, CVE-2021-22940

    Use after free attack where an attacker might be able to exploit the memory corruption, to change process behavior.

  • CVE-2021-22939

    If the Node.js https API was used incorrectly and undefined was in passed for the rejectUnauthorized parameter, no error was returned and connections to servers with an expired certificate would have been accepted.

  • CVE-2022-21824

    Due to the formatting logic of the "console.table()" function it was not safe to allow user controlled input to be passed to the properties parameter while simultaneously passing a plain object with at least one property as the first parameter, which could be __proto__.

  • CVE-2022-32212

    OS Command Injection vulnerability due to an insufficient IsAllowedHost check that can easily be bypassed because IsIPAddress does not properly check if an IP address is invalid before making DBS requests allowing rebinding attacks.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 10.24.0~dfsg-1~deb10u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your nodejs packages.
