Spree is an open source e-commerce framework for Ruby on Rails.

Spree contains a flaw that leads to unauthorized privileges being gained. The issue is triggered as certain input related to mass role assignment in app/models/spree/user.rb is not properly verified before being used to update a user. This may allow a remote attacker to assign arbitrary roles and gain elevated administrative privileges.
