This "binaryextensions" NPM package is a fraud (not to be confused with "binary-extensions"!): https://npmjs.com/package/...; it contains a single JSON array of purportedly "all binary extensions", reaches 700k downloads a week, yet only lists 13 binary extensions (https://github.com/bevry/...).

This is a huge danger to security, especially if it's being used in production environments for input checking. For comparison, here is a much more robust version of a repo with the same goal (https://github.com/sindresorhus/...)
