Description Jeremy Choi 2016-08-01 01:25:18 UTC
Regular users are able to add a user with super user role by sending a crafted POST request through the JON web console. This allows attackers to gain admin privilege, which leads to affecting Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of  the JON server itself as well as the resources it manages.
