A vulnerability, which was classified as critical, was found in jsrsasign Package up to 8.0.16 on Node.js (JavaScript Library). This affects an unknown part of the component RSASSA-PSS Handler. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a memory corruption vulnerability. CWE is classifying the issue as CWE-119. This is going to have an impact on integrity, and availability. The summary by CVE is:

An issue was discovered in the jsrsasign package before 8.0.17 for Node.js. Its RSASSA-PSS (RSA-PSS) implementation does not detect signature manipulation/modification by prepending '\0' bytes to a signature (it accepts these modified signatures as valid). An attacker can abuse this behavior in an application by creating multiple valid signatures where only one signature should exist. Also, an attacker might prepend these bytes with the goal of triggering memory corruption issues.

The weakness was published 06/22/2020. This vulnerability is uniquely identified as CVE-2020-14968 since 06/22/2020. The exploitability is told to be difficult. It is possible to initiate the attack remotely. No form of authentication is needed for exploitation. Neither technical details nor an exploit are publicly available.

Upgrading to version 8.0.17 eliminates this vulnerability.
