A security misconfiguration allows an attacker to access sensitive information, intended for secure connections only, over insecure channels. This can lead to the exposure of sensitive data, such as user authentication credentials or financial information.


Configure your web server and application server to enforce HTTPS-only communication. Implement HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to ensure all traffic is encrypted.
