How to fix?

Overview

github.com/hashicorp/vault/vault is a tool for securely accessing secrets.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Insecure Permissions due to an unexpected interaction between glob-related policies and the Google Cloud secrets engine. Users may, in some situations, have more privileges than intended, e.g., a user with read permission for the /gcp/roleset/* path may be able to issue Google Cloud service account credentials.
