Improper Certificate Validation in npm/xmlhttprequest-ssl

Identifier

CVE-2021-31597

Package Slug

npm/xmlhttprequest-ssl

Vulnerability

Improper Certificate Validation

Description

The xmlhttprequest-ssl package for Node.js disables SSL certificate validation by default, because rejectUnauthorized (when the property exists but is undefined) is considered to be false within the https.request function of Node.js. In other words, no certificate is ever rejected.

Affected Versions

All versions before 1.6.1
