How to fix?

Upgrade ecto to version 2.2.1 or higher.


ecto is a toolkit for data mapping and language integrated query for Elixir.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Input Validation. Affected versions of ecto do raise an error when non-explicit nil comparisons are made (as opposed to being checked with is_nil). An attacker could pass a field as nil (e.g. a token field) and force the application to run a query it was not intended to.
