*Insecure direct object references (IDOR)*
Insecure Direct Object References (IDOR) occur when an application provides direct access to objects based on user-supplied input.Insecure Direct Object References allow attackers to bypass authorization and access resources directly by modifying the value of a parameter used to directly point to an object. Such resources can be database entries belonging to other users, files in the system.

*Attack Vector*
An attacker can takeover the Administrator's account

*Steps of reproduce:*
Note: in this case, we used two users, user1 as a staff with user id '4', and admin as an Administrator with user id '1'.

Step-1: Log in to the application using user1 account,then on the dashboard navigate to 'My Account'

http://localhost/hprms/admin/?page=user

Step-2: Modify the username,lastname and password,then let's intercept the request using burpsuite:
