How to fix?

There is no fix version for sync-exec.

Overview

sync-exec is an fs.execSync replacement for node <0.12.

Affected versions of this package use tmp directories in an insecure way. The file to create will allways return true, regardess if the directory already exists and/or belongs to another user. Any user on the server may read the contents of this tmp file and may expose confidential information to an attacker.
