Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 8 vulnerabilities.

1) Security features bypass

EUVDB-ID: #VU65280

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-32222

CWE-ID: CWE-254 - Security Features

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions

The vulnerability exists due to Node.js after start on linux based systems attempts to read /home/iojs/build/ws/out/Release/obj.target/deps/openssl/openssl.cnf, which ordinarily doesn't exist. A remote unauthenticated attacker can attemp to read openssl.cnf from /home/iojs/build/ upon startup to create this file and affect the default OpenSSL configuration for other users.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
