How to fix?

A fix was pushed into the master branch but not yet published.


Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Privilege Escalation due to Type Juggling, it is possible to confuse the application when verifying passwords. For example, the following expression, when used in password verification process, will evaluate to true: password == 0. The fix makes sure that the entered password is of the same type as the one that is stored in the database.
