This exercise involves analyzing the source code of a Golang framework to uncover vulnerabilities. The goal is to concentrate on the management of static assets, as the code does not use a standard method for this task, leading to a common vulnerability. By focusing on this subset of the code, you will learn how to identify and exploit the vulnerability, which was subsequently fixed after being discovered by PentesterLab.

Through this challenge, you'll gain insights into reviewing larger projects by targeting specific parts of the code. This method allows you to pinpoint irregularities and vulnerabilities more efficiently. The exercise underscores the importance of thorough code review and highlights how even small segments of code can reveal critical security issues. We hope you enjoy this learning experience with PentesterLab.
