>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: cordova-android, cordova-app-hello-world, cordova-browser, cordova-cli,
cordova-coho, cordova-common, cordova-ios, cordova-js, cordova-lib, cordova-osx, cordova-plugman,

>            Priority: Major
> From private discussions I discovered that running {{npm audit}} on a number of components
would report dependencies with security issues. While we could not see any {{npm audit}} issues
that may affect applications built using Cordova I think it is extremely important to resolve
these issues as soon as possible. Most affect devDependencies used for testing of Cordova
itself; a minority seem to affect Cordova scripts that may be run by Cordova application developers.
Better safe than sorry!
> I would like to resolve this issue as follows:
> * patch release of common library components such as {{cordova-common}}, {{cordova-lib}},
etc. (fixed in minor release branch)
> * patch or minor release of other affected components such as CLI, Cordova platform implementations,
major plugins, etc. (expected to be fixed in minor release branch; do not want to pollute
the master branch with extra reverts, updated node_modules committed, etc.)
> * {{npm audit}} issues resolved in master branch for next major release, which should
NOT be shipped with any {{npm audit}} issues lurking
> * {{npm audit}} step added to CI for both patch release and next major release
