In this challenge, you will delve into the source code of a minimal Java application, designed as a simple clone of Twitter. The primary objective is to gain familiarity with Java applications and their frameworks, which often create very minimalistic applications. Pay particular attention to the timeline template and look for a vulnerability that is similar to the one you encountered in previous exercises, using the same vector.

The exercise aims to build your confidence in handling Java applications by reviewing a small project. Despite its minimal size, the project contains essential elements that will help you identify code that appears suspicious. By thoroughly examining the source code, you'll be able to pinpoint vulnerabilities effectively. This exercise is an excellent opportunity to practice and enhance your code review skills, specifically in the context of Java applications.
