Problem

Unprotected mass assignment

Location

app/controllers/session_controller.rb:447

User.find_by_username_or_email(normalized_login_param).email_tokens.create(:email => User.find_by_username_or_email(normalized_login_param).email)

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/session_controller.rb or mark it as false positive.
