Regular Expression Denial of Serviceparsejson
Affected versions of
parsejson are vulnerable to a regular expression denial of service when parsing untrusted user input.
parsejson package has not been functionally updated since it was initially released.
Additionally, it provides functionality which is natively included in Node.js, and therefore the native
JSON.parse() should be used, for both performance and security reasons.
