Thu, 31 Jul 2014 19:00:00 UTC - vulnerability

A memory corruption vulnerability, which results in a denial-of-service, was identified in the versions of V8 that ship with Node.js 0.8 and 0.10. In certain circumstances, a particularly deep recursive workload that may trigger a GC and receive an interrupt may overflow the stack and result in a segmentation fault. For instance, if your work load involves successive JSON.parse calls and the parsed objects are significantly deep, you may experience the process aborting while parsing.

This issue was identified by Tom Steele of ^Lift Security and Fedor Indunty, Node.js Core Team member worked closely with the V8 team to find our resolution.

The V8 issue is described here

It has landed in the Node repository here:

And has been released in the following versions:

The Fix

The backport of the fix for Node.js is

The best course of action is to patch or upgrade Node.js.


To mitigate against deep JSON parsing you can limit the size of the string you parse against, or ban clients who trigger a RangeError for parsing JSON.

There is no specific maximum size of a JSON string, though keeping the max to the size of your known message bodies is suggested. If your message bodies cannot be over 20K, there's no reason to accept 1MB bodies.

For web frameworks that do automatic JSON parsing, you may need to configure the routes that accept JSON payloads to have a maximum body size.
