Missing secure obfuscation

Description

It is possible to obtain source code from the application since it has not been securely obfuscated. This could allow an attacker to understand the inner workings of the application or obtain technical or sensitive information.

Impact

Understand the inner workings of the application to generate new attack vectors.

Recommendation

Obfuscate the applications JavaScript to prevent leakage of technical information that could reveal vulnerable features.

Threat

Anonymous attacker from the Internet.

Expected Remediation Time

⌚ 60 minutes.

Score

Default score using CVSS 3.1. It may change depending on the context of the vulnerability.

Code Examples

Compliant code

The source code was obfuscated, preventing an attacker to understand the inner workings of the code

//Rename Obfuscation method
private void calculatePay(a b){
while(b.c()){
b.a(true);
c.a();
b(c);
}
}

Non compliant code

The source code was not obfuscated

private void calculatePay(SpecialList clientGroup){
while(clientGroup.HasMore()){
clientGroup.getNext(true);
client.updatePay();
makePay(client);
}
}
