Denial of Service in ammo

High severity GitHub Reviewed Published Sep 3, 2020

Package

npm ammo (npm)

Affected versions

>= 0.0.0

Patched versions

None

Description

All versions of ammo are vulnerable to Denial of Service. The Range HTTP header parser has a vulnerability which will cause the function to throw a system error if the header is set to an invalid value. Because hapi is not expecting the function to ever throw, the error is thrown all the way up the stack. If no unhandled exception handler is available, the application will exist, allowing an attacker to shut down services.

Recommendation

This package is deprecated and is now maintained as @hapi/ammo. Please update your dependencies to use @hapi/ammo.
