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 vulnerabilities within a codebase. You are provided with both the vulnerable code and its respective patch. The primary objective is to try and locate the vulnerability independently before consulting the patch. This method encourages critical thinking and a deeper comprehension of common code flaws.

Once you have made your assessment, comparing your findings with the patch will help validate your understanding and provide additional insights into how the vulnerability was mitigated. This exercise not only sharpens your vulnerability detection skills but also familiarizes you with the process of applying and understanding code patches, which is crucial for maintaining secure codebases.
