The Storage API module creates an underlying agnostic storage layer for Drupal using many different underlying storage methods. Storage API can be used to create fields for entities to hold data.

The module failed to restrict access to the Storage API fields attached to entities that are not nodes.

This is mitigated by the fact that only entities with fields using storage classes that have access restrictions are affected (they don't have by default).
