When using the dart pub publish command to publish a package to a third-party package server, the request would be authenticated with an oauth2 access_token that is valid for publishing on pub.dev. Using these obtained credentials, an attacker can impersonate the user on pub.dev. We recommend upgrading past https://github.com/dart-lang/sdk/commit/d787e78d21e12ec1ef712d229940b1172aafcdf8 or beyond version 2.15.0

Weakness

The product exposes a resource to the wrong control sphere, providing unintended actors with inappropriate access to the resource.

Extended Description

Resources such as files and directories may be inadvertently exposed through mechanisms such as insecure permissions, or when a program accidentally operates on the wrong object. For example, a program may intend that private files can only be provided to a specific user. This effectively defines a control sphere that is intended to prevent attackers from accessing these private files. If the file permissions are insecure, then parties other than the user will be able to access those files. A separate control sphere might effectively require that the user can only access the private files, but not any other files on the system. If the program does not ensure that the user is only requesting private files, then the user might be able to access other files on the system. In either case, the end result is that a resource has been exposed to the wrong party.
