Package : node-moment
Version : 2.24.0+ds-1+deb10u1
CVE ID : CVE-2022-24785 CVE-2022-31129
Debian Bug : 1009327 1014845

Moment.js is a JavaScript date library for parsing, validating,
manipulating, and formatting dates. A couple of vulnerabilities
were reported as follows:

CVE-2022-24785

A path traversal vulnerability impacts npm (server) users of
Moment.js, especially if a user-provided locale string is directly
used to switch moment locale.

CVE-2022-31129

Affected versions of moment were found to use an inefficient
parsing algorithm. Specifically using string-to-date parsing in
moment (more specifically rfc2822 parsing, which is tried by
default) has quadratic (N^2) complexity on specific inputs. Users
may notice a noticeable slowdown is observed with inputs above 10k
characters. Users who pass user-provided strings without sanity
length checks to moment constructor are vulnerable to (Re)DoS
attacks.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
2.24.0+ds-1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your node-moment packages.
