Coders using node.js in general seem to really like to pile up a lot of dependencies - while giving a shit about devops security. Looks like shady folks stumbled upon news from 2013.
Another bad practice: Naively downloading and executing Docker images.
It is a bit like the big email worm epidemics - but for naive devs wich search and download the malware instead of naive users wich click on malware mailed to them.

there's malware in adverts, you see a lot if you mod minecraft, they use adfly as revenue when downloading a mod, and about 90 percent of adfly adverts are infected, so i use a adblocker, which blocks the malware infected ads, they complain that am stopping them from gaining revenue, but what revenue are they getting from an online ad site that loads there ads with malware.
