    1. Summary:
    
    An update for http-parser is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
    of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
    gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
    the CVE link(s) in the References section.

    3. Description:
    
    The http-parser package provides a utility for parsing HTTP messages. It
    parses both requests and responses. The parser is designed to be used in
    performance HTTP applications. It does not make any system calls or
    allocations, it does not buffer data, and it can be interrupted at any
    time. Depending on your architecture, it only requires about 40 bytes of
    data per message stream.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * nodejs: Denial of Service with large HTTP headers (CVE-2018-12121)
