Problem

Unprotected mass assignment

Location

app/controllers/admin/themes_controller.rb:62

Theme.new(:name => JSON.parse(params[:theme].read)["theme"]["name"], :user_id => theme_user.id)

Category description: Unprotected model attributes give the attacker a way to rewrite them. E.g., change the admin flag to true.

Solution: fix the issue in app/controllers/admin/themes_controller.rb or mark it as false positive.
