mountebank is programmable through injection. This makes the tool very extensible and flexible, but it should only be used with an understanding of the security implications. When you enable the --allowInjection flag, you aren't just giving yourself the ability to extend mountebank: you're also potentially enabling attackers remote execution capabilities on your machine.

mountebank highly recommends you take the following approaches to securing your environment if you require --allowInjection:

The most secure option, of course, is to simply not use the --allowInjection flag. If there are common operations you find yourself using injection for, feel free to suggest those operations as core features in a future release of mountebank.
