Troll package


An open-source package that is a troll package could be a software component or library that is publicly available and distributed under an open-source license, but is created with the primary intention of being humorous, satirical, or misleading rather than providing genuine functionality or utility.


Troll packages may contain code that is not thoroughly reviewed or tested, increasing the risk of security vulnerabilities, bugs, or unintended consequences. Users may inadvertently expose their systems to security risks by using troll packages that have not undergone proper scrutiny.
The presence of troll packages in software repositories can erode trust and confidence in the integrity and reliability of the open-source ecosystem.


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