Security Advisory

This security advisory describes one medium risk vulnerability.

1) Resource exhaustion

Severity: Medium

CVSSv3: 6.9 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:U/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: N/A

CWE-ID: CWE-400 - Uncontrolled Resource Consumption ('Resource Exhaustion')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Crafted objects passed to the renderSync function may trigger C++ assertions in CustomImporterBridge::get_importer_entry and CustomImporterBridge::post_process_return_value that crash the Node process. This may allow attackers to crash the system's running Node process and lead to Denial of Service.

Mitigation

Cybersecurity Help is currently unaware of any official solution to address this vulnerability.
