CVE-2023-30588 is a vulnerability that affects all active versions of Node.js (v16, v18, and v20). When an invalid public key is used to create an x509 certificate using the crypto.X509Certificate() API, it can lead to a non-expected termination, making it susceptible to denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. If an attacker forces interruptions of application processing, the process will terminate when accessing the public key info from provided certificates in user code. This can result in a DoS scenario where the current context of the users is lost. The vulnerability affects various products, including 'j7Q-XL', 'j7Q-XK', 'j7Q-XJ', and many more. Remediation for this vulnerability requires updating to a patched version of Node.js. The potential danger posed by this vulnerability is a disruption of service for affected organizations due to DoS attacks.
