Reported on

Apr 30th 2022


When a user created with a profile picture and deleted after some time the profile picture of that user is still remain on the server even after deleting the user's account

Proof of Concept

  1. Create a new student with a profile picture
  2. Delete this user
  3. And visit this url{userID of Deleted user}.jpg

Remediation:- Delete the user's profile image rather than unlinking it


Even after deleting the user's profile image remain on server which impact on user's privacy.
