Lodash Vulnerable to Remote Code Execution via Prototype Pollution in defaultsDeep Function



Lodash contains a prototype pollution flaw. An attacker could exploit this to modify the component or cause remote code execution or a denial-of-service (DoS).



Technical Description

Technical Description

Unsafe recursive JSON merges can result in an attacker being able to tamper with the JavaScript `Object` which can then influence other data-types through the prototype chain. The `defaultsDeep` function of `defaultsDeep.js` exposes this type of vulnerability. The issue has been fixed by including a check to ensure that the global object is not polluted. The exact impact of this vulnerability will range from property injection to code injection and denial-of-service, depending on the application code.
