I had a similar issue. npm cache clear --force fixed it.

The most recent commit (committed yesterday) on the repository (the "official" source repository mentioned on the website ( is extremely suspicious.

The commit message is "Remove backdoor". There are no file changes, but there are 12 comments, 11 out of which link to random YouTube videos, and the last one is a very weird image with a caption.

All this raises a lot of suspicion, and I believe people should not update to the latest version of Ferdi (in fact, unless you are sure that your current Ferdi binary's source does not have any sort of backdoors, then just remove it).

@MangoMan ferdi is not longer developed, this package has no maintainer. I would suggest switching to ferdium

Disowning, as I no longer use ferdi.

The old maintainers of Ferdi is trying to create a new fork called Ferdium. Check it here

Ok here is a reddit thread covering about it

I'll give it a couple of days to see if ferdi comes back or one of the forks gains some momentum and I'll change the package accordingly.

No idea what's happening, I used to be a member of the ferdi org on GitHub, but got removed a couple of months back, so I'm as surprised as anyone else.

@Drishal I've come to notice the same thing. It's all just gone without notice. According to this reddit thread there was some drama surrounding Ferdi. I can only assume that this means we've got to start looking for an alternative.

Hello, anyone having any ideas what suddenly happened to ferdi? seems like everything just vanished into thin air. Github account is deleted, website is dead and their twitter has vanished
