Overview

spree_auth is a required dependency for spree.

Affected versions of this gem are vulnerable 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.

This vulnerability is related to spree_auth_devise
