Update


2017-10-24, Version 6.11.5 'Boron' (LTS), @MylesBorins

This is a security release. All Node.js users should consult the security release summary at https://nodejs.org/en/blog/vulnerability/oct-2017-dos/ for details on patched vulnerabilities.

Notable Changes

  • zlib:
    • CVE-2017-14919 - In zlib v1.2.9, a change was made that causes an error to be raised when a raw deflate stream is initialized with windowBits set to 8. On some versions this crashes Node and you cannot recover from it, while on some versions it throws an exception. Node.js will now gracefully set windowBits to 9 replicating the legacy behavior to avoid a DOS vector. nodejs-private/node-private#95

Hi, I know this is probably not the right venue for this, but what would it take to get the new NodeJS 8 LTS into EPEL?

@toefraz Node.js v8 requires gcc >= 4.9.4, centos provides gcc 4.8.5, so we are not able to build it in EPEL. You can however use Software collections which provide nodejs in version 8.

This update has reached 14 days in testing and can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes 2 years ago
