How to fix?

Upgrade solidus_api to version 1.1.0.pre2 or higher.


solidus_api is REST API for the Solidus e-commerce framework.

Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to Privilege Escalation. A lower-level admin can change the email address of a higher-level admin to an email address they have access to, and as a result they will gain access to the admin's permissions.
