Yarn is a package manager for the npm and bower registries with a few specific

Determinism: Based around a version lockfile which ensures that operations on
the dependency graph can be easily transitioned. We check module directories
and verify their integrity to ensure Yarn install always produces the same file

Security: Strict guarantees are placed around package installation. You have
control over whether lifecycle scripts are executed for packages and package
hashes are stored in the lockfile to ensure you get the same package each time.

Performance: We're always performing operations such as package resolving and
fetching in parallel. This ensures little idle time and maximum resource

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
