  • Electronegativity now features a Node API-friendly function that can be used programmatically (thanks @baltpeter!) #59
const run = require('@doyensec/electronegativity')
// or: import run from '@doyensec/electronegativity';

  // input (directory, .js, .html, .asar)
  input: '/path/to/electron/app',
  // save the results to a file in csv or sarif format (optional)
  output: '/path/for/output/file',
  // true to save output as sarif, false to save as csv (optional)
  isSarif: false,
  // only run the specified checks
  customScan: ['dangerousfunctionsjscheck', 'remotemodulejscheck'],
  // only return findings with the specified level of severity or above (optional)
  severitySet: 'high',
  // only return findings with the specified level of confidence or above (optional)
  confidenceSet: 'certain',
  // show relative path for files (optional)
  isRelative: false,
  // run Electron upgrade checks, eg -u 7..8 to check upgrade from Electron 7 to 8 (optional)
  electronUpgrade: '7..8'
    .then(result => console.log(result))
    .catch(err => console.error(err));

  • Add Electron upgrade checks to Electronegativity. The intention of this feature is for developers to discover the breaking changes that will affect them when they upgrade to a newer version of Electron. As it currently stands this feature will add checks for Electron versions 5-8. To use this feature a new argument -u or --upgrade has been added (thanks @jkleinsc!) #60

  • Variable scoping analysis capabilities have been added to inspect the Function and Global variable content, when available.
  • Every check now has an importance and accuracy attribute which helps the auditor to determine the importance of each finding. Consequently, we also introduced some new command line flags to filter the results by severity (--severity) and by confidence (--confidence), useful for tailored Electronegativity integration in your application security pipelines or build systems.
  • Add support for BrowserView and nodeIntegrationInSubFrames
  • Add the -r, --relative flag to display relative path for files
  • Upgraded typescript-estree to @typescript-eslint/typescript-estree
