flatmap-stream is a malicious package which was used in order to steal bitcoins from wallets. The malicious code was able to check if the
copay-dash package was installed, and then attempt to steal the bitcoins stored in it. It was distributed by hijacking the popular
event-stream package and adding
flatmap-stream as a dependency.
