How to fix?

Upgrade node to version 6.15.0, 8.14.0 or higher.


node is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to HTTP request splitting. If Node.js can be convinced to use unsanitized user-provided Unicode data for the path option of an HTTP request, then data can be provided which will trigger a second, unexpected, and user-defined HTTP request to made to the same server.
