Does anyone know how to fix an insecure dataroot? I've been having problems with people registering on my class website that are not my actual students.

Thanks,

Not sure this is a security issue with 'insecure dataroot', but, rather, a confiiguration issue with the site.  There a few ways to assure that only your students register for your courses.  Put a key on the courses.  When/if a guest user registers an account in Moodle via EMail based authentication and then attempts to enter the course, they are prompted to provide the key (a phrase/line of text) which can only be obtained by the teacher in the course.  Change the key after all your true students have signed up.
