CWE-94 Open this link in a new tab

How to fix?

Overview

mol-proto is a ES5-compatible object manipulation library for node and modern browsers.

Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Injection due to unsafe use of the eval() function. Node.js provides the eval() function by default, and is used to translate strings into Javascript code. An attacker can craft a malicious payload to inject arbitrary commands.
