This challenge covers the review of a CVE in a Java codebase and its patch

< 1 Hr.


The Code Review Patch challenges are designed to enhance your skills in identifying and understanding security vulnerabilities within code. You are provided with both the original, vulnerable code and the patched version. Your task is to examine the code to find the security issue without looking at the patch initially. This method helps in sharpening your analytical skills and deepens your understanding of common vulnerabilities.

If you cannot identify the issue or wish to confirm your findings, you can then review the patch file. The patch will highlight the changes made to address the vulnerability, offering insight into effective remediation techniques. This approach not only improves your code review capabilities but also familiarizes you with best practices in secure coding.
