Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2021-3805, CVE-2021-23434.
More information:

It was discovered that node-object-path, a Node.js module to access deep object properties using dot-separated paths, was vulnerable to prototype pollution.

  • CVE-2021-3805

    Prototype pollution vulnerability in the del(), empty(), push() and insert() functions when using the inherited props mode (e.g. when a new object-path instance is created with the includeInheritedProps option set to true or when using the withInheritedProps default instance).

  • CVE-2021-23434

    A type confusion vulnerability can lead to a bypass of the CVE-2020-15256 fix when the path components used in the path parameter are arrays, because the === operator returns always false when the type of the operands is different.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 0.11.4-2+deb10u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your node-object-path packages.
