Code Review 13

This exercise is one of our challenges to help you learn how to review real source code

2-4 Hrs.


This challenge involves analyzing the source code of a minimal Java application designed as a simple Twitter clone. The objective is to gain confidence in handling Java applications and to identify potential vulnerabilities within the code. The framework used creates very minimalistic applications, allowing for a more straightforward review process.

The primary focus of this exercise is on the Follow action within the application. By examining this specific functionality, participants can learn to spot code that doesn't seem right and could potentially lead to security vulnerabilities. This hands-on approach helps in understanding the nuances of Java applications and prepares participants for more complex code reviews.
