How to fix?

Upgrade github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/v6/api to version 6.4.0 or higher.

Overview

github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/v6/api is an open source, private cloud, Slack-alternative from https://mattermost.com.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Privilege Chaining due to an API that fails to properly protect permissions, which allows the system administrators to combine the two distinct privileges/capabilities in a way that allows them to override certain restricted configurations like EnableUploads.
