Description

** DISPUTED ** SQL injection vulnerability in the 'reorder' method in Ruby on Rails 5.1.4 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands via the 'name' parameter. NOTE: The vendor disputes this issue because the documentation states that this method is not intended for use with untrusted input.
