Subject: CVE for nodejs node-uuid

Insecure Entropy Source - Math.random()

March 28th, 2016
CVE-PENDING • Credit: Fedot Praslov
Vulnerable: <1.4.4
Patched: >=1.4.4

node-uuid prior to 1.4.4 contained a bug that caused it to consistently
fall back to using Math.random instead of a more cryptographically sound
source of entropy, the native crypto module.


Upgrade to version 1.4.4 or greater
