How to fix?

There is no fixed version for wincred.

Overview

wincred is a wincred

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Command Injection. If attacker-controlled user input is given to the getCredential function, it is possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary commands. This is due to use of the child_process exec function without input sanitization.

PoC (provided by reporter):

var wincred = require('wincred');

wincred.getCredential("|| touch success");

(A file called success will be created as a result of the execution of touch success.)
