In this lab, we delve into the intricacies of reviewing code patches to identify vulnerabilities. You are provided with both the vulnerable code and the corresponding patch. Initially, your task is to pinpoint the issue in the code without referencing the patch. This approach helps in honing your skills in identifying vulnerabilities purely from the code.

Once you have attempted to find the issue on your own, you can then refer to the patch (diff file) to confirm your findings or to discover what you might have missed. This method not only reinforces the learning process but also enhances your ability to recognize common patterns in code vulnerabilities.
