Latest versions of colors.js and faker.js causing build timeout

We recently saw an increase of jobs encountering timeout errors as the output of a step was producing an endless string of illegible text. This is related to a recent release to the colors.js and faker.js packages, more details here:

The resolution for this issue appears to be to update to the newest version of colors.js – as for faker.js it looks like a downgrade is needed (to 5.5.3) to resolve the issue.

As these jobs will never complete and timeout we are working on canceling them, to ensure credits are not wasted in these affected jobs.

If you have any questions on the above feel free to reply to this thread or submit a support ticket.
