How to fix?
github.com/cockroachdb/cockroach/pkg/server/serverpb to version 19.1.16, 19.2.2 or higher.
github.com/cockroachdb/cockroach/pkg/server/serverpb is an open source, cloud-native SQL database.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Authorization. A non-admin authenticated user can call any admin endpoint, even if they should be admin-only operations, as long as the endpoint is visible over HTTP. It makes it possible for non-admin users to shut down a node or view SQL objects on which they have no permission.
