Problem

Unprotected mass assignment

Location

app/models/topic_user.rb:241

TopicUser.create!(attrs.merge!(:user_id => user_id, :topic_id => topic_id, :first_visited_at => DateTime.now, :last_visited_at => DateTime.now))

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/models/topic_user.rb or mark it as false positive.
