CVE-2021-43616 Details

Return To CVE Listing for 2021

NameCVE-2021-43616
StatusCandidate
DescriptionThe npm ci command in npm 7.x and 8.x through 8.1.3 proceeds with an installation even if dependency information in package-lock.json differs from package.json. This behavior is inconsistent with the documentation, and makes it easier for attackers to install malware that was supposed to have been blocked by an exact version match requirement in package-lock.json.
