Protecting our users from the ESLint NPM package breach

John Powell

On the 12th of July 2018, malicious code was detected in two popular open-source NPM packages, eslint-scope (version 3.7.2) and eslint-config-eslint (version 5.0.2). As a result, developers who downloaded and installed these packages may have had credentials stored in their .npmrc file compromised. This may include credentials required to access package feeds hosted in Visual Studio Team Services.
