Node v0.8.17 (Stable)

Thu, 10 Jan 2013 01:06:36 UTC - release

This release addresses a potential security vulnerability.

If you do not use TypedArrays, then you're fine (but should still upgrade for other reasons, like better performance and npm peerDependencies.)

If you use TypedArrays, you should upgrade to v0.8.17 as soon as possible. If user input can affect the size parameter in a TypedArray, an integer overflow vulnerability could allow an attacker to write to areas of memory outside the intended buffer. Please upgrade ASAP.
