Description ybuenos 2023-01-26 14:06:24 UTC
In ActiveRecord < and <, when a value outside the range for a 64bit signed integer is provided to the PostgreSQL connection adapter, it will treat the target column type as numeric. Comparing integer values against numeric values can result in a slow sequential scan resulting in potential Denial of Service.
