CVSS v3.x: 2.5 (Low)
- < 4.23.0
- >= 4.25.0
Versions 4.23.0 and 4.24.0 of the octokit gem were published containing world-writeable files.
Specifically, the gem was packed
with files having their permissions set to
-rw-rw-rw- (i.e. 0666) instead of
(i.e. 0644). 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.
Malicious code already present and running on your machine, separate from this package, could modify the gem’s files and change its behavior during runtime.
Users can use the previous version of the gem v4.22.0. Alternatively, users can modify the file permissions manually until they are able to upgrade to the latest version.
