Problem

Unprotected mass assignment

Location

app/controllers/users_controller.rb:795

UserHistory.create!(:target_user => (@user), :acting_user => (@user), :action => UserHistory.actions[:change_password])

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/users_controller.rb or mark it as false positive.
