How to fix?

Upgrade octokit to version 4.25.0 or higher.


Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Insecure Permissions due to the gem file containing world-writeable files. This means everyone who is not the owner (Group and Public) with access to the instance where this release had been installed could modify the world-writable files from this gem.


Users that can't upgrade to version 4.25.0 can revert to version 4.22.0. Alternatively, users can modify the file permissions manually.
