Private IP Disclosure

A private IP address or an Amazon EC2 private hostname has been inadvertently disclosed, potentially facilitating further attacks on internal systems.


To mitigate this issue, ensure that all private IP addresses are removed from HTTP response bodies. For comments within code, use language-specific syntax (e.g., JSP/ASP/PHP) rather than HTML/JavaScript comments that can be accessed by clients.
