Description

A flaw was found in Node.js. The privateDecrypt() API of the crypto library may allow a covert timing side-channel during PKCS#1 v1.5 padding error handling. This issue revealed significant timing differences in decryption for valid and invalid ciphertexts, which may allow a remote attacker to decrypt captured RSA ciphertexts or forge signatures, especially in scenarios involving API endpoints processing JSON Web Encryption messages.
