Node.js reports:

HTTP Request Smuggling due to spaced in headers (Medium)(CVE-2021-22959)

The http parser accepts requests with a space (SP) right after the header name before the colon. This can lead to HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS).

HTTP Request Smuggling when parsing the body (Medium)(CVE-2021-22960)

The parse ignores chunk extensions when parsing the body of chunked requests. This leads to HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS) under certain conditions.
