Symfony is a PHP framework and a set of reusable PHP components for creating web applications, APIs, microservices, and web services. A Symfony databases.yml configuration file may expose sensitive information that could help a malicious user to prepare more advanced attacks. It’s recommended to remove or restrict access to this type of files from production systems.

Mitigation / Precaution

Remove or restrict access to all configuration files accessible from the internet.
