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 code review skills by presenting both the original, vulnerable code and the patched version. Your task is to spot the vulnerability in the code before looking at the patch. This approach helps you understand the nature of the vulnerability and the reasoning behind the fix. If you encounter difficulties or want to verify your findings, you can then consult the patch file to see the specific changes made.

In this particular challenge, you are given a Java file `` from the Apache InLong project, along with a patch file `cve-2023-350xx.diff`. The challenge involves identifying security flaws in the audit service implementation and understanding how the patch addresses these issues. This exercise not only helps in recognizing common security pitfalls but also in appreciating the importance of secure coding practices.
