Isaac Schlueter just posted this warning .. 
    This release addresses a potential security vulnerability.

    If you do not use TypedArrays, then you're fine (but should still
    upgrade for other reasons, like better performance and npm

    If you use TypedArrays, you should upgrade to v0.8.17 as soon as
    possible. If user input can affect the size parameter in a
    TypedArray, an integer overflow vulnerability could allow an attacker
    to write to areas of memory outside the intended buffer. Please
    upgrade ASAP.
