Authentication Bypass


The application is vulnerable to authentication bypass. The application allows users to access sensitive areas of the application and bypass authentication controls. A lack of proper authentication exposes sensitive data and operations within the application and prevents the logging and tracking of user activity.


An authentication process that can be bypassed is a serious risk for the application. An authentication bypass vulnerability removes access controls from the application and opens up the application to anonymous users (attackers). If the application is available externally, the number of potential users who could attack the application is significant. A failure in authentication controls can lead to significant data loss and a lack of control over sensitive operations.
