Security Vulnerability CVE-2021-22884 for Nodejs


Node.js before 10.24.0, 12.21.0, 14.16.0, and 15.10.0 is vulnerable to DNS rebinding attacks as the whitelist includes localhost6. When localhost6 is not present in /etc/hosts, it is just an ordinary domain that is resolved via DNS, i.e., over network. If the attacker controls the victim\'s DNS server or can spoof its responses, the DNS rebinding protection can be bypassed by using the localhost6 domain. As long as the attacker uses the localhost6 domain, they can still apply the attack described in CVE-2018-7160.
