2. Description:

Red Hat Single Sign-On 7.1 is a standalone server, based on the Keycloak
project, that provides authentication and standards-based single sign-on
capabilities for web and mobile applications. The Node.js adapter provides
a simple module for authentication and authorization in Node.js

This asynchronous patch is a security update for the Node.js adapter for
Red Hat Single Sign-On 7.1.

* It was found that the Keycloak Node.js adapter did not handle invalid
tokens correctly. An attacker could use this flaw to bypass authentication
and gain access to restricted information, or to possibly conduct further
attacks. (CVE-2017-7474)

Red Hat would like to thank Nick Shearer (Quest) for reporting this issue.
