A potentially sensitive piece of information about this application is exposed due to the enabled Spring Actuators for Health. While these actuators can be useful for monitoring, they should be used judiciously to avoid exposing too much about the app or its underlying infrastructure.


Either disable the Health Actuators and other actuators, or restrict their access only to authorized administrative users.
