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

< 1 Hr.


In the Code Review Patch challenges, you are presented with both the vulnerable code and the subsequent patch that addresses the issue. The primary objective is to detect the vulnerability on your own before consulting the patch. This approach helps you hone your code review skills and develop an in-depth understanding of common security flaws.

To assist you in this process, the challenge includes a detailed code excerpt and a diff file that highlights the changes made to secure the application. By comparing the original and patched versions, you can gain insights into the nature of the vulnerability and the necessary steps to mitigate it. This exercise is crucial for anyone looking to improve their ability to identify and fix security issues in code.
