Stealing PII


An open-source package that steals users' Personally Identifiable Information (PII) could be a software component or library that is publicly available and distributed under an open-source license, but contains code designed to illicitly gather sensitive personal data from users without their consent. This stolen information may include names, addresses, social security numbers, financial data, login credentials, and other personally identifiable details.


The presence of an open-source package that steals PII poses significant risks to users' privacy, security, and identity protection.
Unauthorized access to sensitive personal data can lead to identity theft, financial fraud, reputational damage, and other serious consequences for affected individuals.


Remove the package from your dependencies list, disconnect affected devices from the network and report the incident to the relevant authorities in your organization.
