Be wary of NPM update
« on: February 23, 2018, 04:32:17 AM »
A bug in npm (Node Package Manager), the most widely used JavaScript package manager (something I have never heard of),  will change ownership of crucial Linux system folders, such as /etc, /usr, /boot

Guess we're lucky the crazy ass developer of VSIDO has never heard of it either...  ???
