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 a piece of vulnerable code alongside a patch that fixes a security issue. Your initial objective is to identify the vulnerability by reviewing the code without referencing the patch. This exercise enhances your ability to recognize security flaws and understand their implications.

Once you've attempted to find the vulnerability, you can look at the patch to see the exact changes made to address the security issue. This will help you understand how such vulnerabilities can be mitigated effectively. By comparing the original code and the patched version, you gain insights into best practices for secure coding and the importance of thorough code reviews.
