July 2021 Security Releases
Updates are now available for v16.x, v14.x, and v12.x Node.js release lines for the following issue.
We normally like to give advance notice and provide releases in which the only changes are security fixes, but since this vulnerability was already public we felt it was more important to get this fix out fast in releases that were already planned.
Node.js is vulnerable to a use after free attack where an attacker might be able to exploit the memory corruption, to change process behavior.
