Global node_modules Binary Overwrite



Versions of bin-links prior to 1.1.6 are vulnerable to a Global node_modules Binary Overwrite. It fails to prevent globally-installed binaries to be overwritten by other package installs. For example, if a package was installed globally and created a serve binary, any subsequent installs of packages that also create a serve binary would overwrite the first binary. This behavior is still allowed in local installations.


Upgrade to version 1.1.6 or later.
