#155 closed defect (fixed)

It's possible to register accounts with the same name as permission groups

The documentation suggests you can create permission groups, assign them permissions, and then assign that group as a permission to a user. A malicious attacker can then register a user with the same name as a permission group, thus gaining all the permissions of that group.
