Servlet Runtime Error Message Containing Sensitive Information
A servlet error message indicates that there exists an unhandled exception in your web application code and may provide useful information to an attacker.
The following examples help to illustrate the nature of this weakness and describe methods or techniques which can be used to mitigate the risk.
Note that the examples here are by no means exhaustive and any given weakness may have many subtle varieties, each of which may require different detection methods or runtime controls.
The following servlet code does not catch runtime exceptions, meaning that if such an exception were to occur, the container may display potentially dangerous information (such as a full stack trace).
Weaknesses in this category are related to sensitive information exposure.
This category identifies Software Fault Patterns (SFPs) within the Exposed Data cluster (SFP23).
