How to fix?

Upgrade activerecord to versions 3.2.10, 3.1.9, 3.0.18 or higher.


ActiveRecord is the Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) that comes out-of-the-box with Rails. It plays the role of Model in the MVC architecture employed by Rails.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to SQL Injection. Due to the way dynamic finders in ActiveRecord extract options from method parameters, a method parameter can mistakenly be used as a scope. Carefully crafted requests can use the scope to inject arbitrary SQL.
