I am deploying my node application on Heroku and I keep getting the below error message.

{ SyntaxError: /app/.heroku/node/lib/node_modules/npm/node_modules/cmd-shim/index.js: Legacy octal literals are not allowed in strict mode (166:15)

Obviously it has something to do with parsing octal literals in strict mode.

It is also obvious that the cmd-shim/index.js file is the one generating this error, however, I can't edit this file.

I need help with a workaround of this issue, or how to resolve it.
