Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Missing Cryptographic Step when storing cryptographic keys. Exploiting this vulnerability allows a server administrator access to an account’s cryptographic keys.

  2. The vulnerable accounts are only resecured when the user next logs in using standalone authentication after upgrading.
