Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Execution. due to the way it handles objects in memory in Microsoft Edge.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could take control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.
