How one developer just broke Node, Babel and thousands of projects in 11 lines of JavaScript


Who is the thief?

So NPM.js not only re-published the left-pad package against the original author's intentions, it assigned a new maintainer on top of that effectively taking ownership of the module.

If that isn't stealing, I don't know what is.

Is this Open Source?
