Source Code Disclosure

Impact: Medium


Source code disclosure occurs when the source code of a web application is inadvertently exposed to users, potentially revealing sensitive information such as credentials, API keys, or proprietary algorithms. This can occur due to misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in the web server or application.


To mitigate source code disclosure vulnerabilities, ensure that sensitive files and directories containing source code are properly protected from unauthorized access. Implement access controls, server-side security measures, and regular security audits to detect and remediate any misconfigurations or vulnerabilities that could lead to source code exposure.
