DLA-3299-1 node-qs -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
30 Jan 2023
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2022-24999.
More information:

Nathanael Braun and Johan Brissaud discovered a prototype poisoning vulnerability in node-qs, a Node.js module to parse and stringify query strings. node-qs 6.5.x before 6.5.3 allows for instance the creation of array-like objects by setting an Array in the __ proto__ property; the resulting Objects inherit the Array prototype, thereby exposing native Array functions.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version 6.5.2-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your node-qs packages.

For the detailed security status of node-qs please refer to its security tracker page at:
