Web Server Reported an Internal Server Error

Netsparker identified an internal server error.

The server responded with an HTTP status 500, indicating there is a server-side error. Reasons may vary, and the behavior should be analyzed carefully. If Netsparker is able to find a security issue in the same resource, it will report this as a separate vulnerability.


The impact may vary depending on the condition. Generally this indicates poor coding practices, not enough error checking, sanitization and whitelisting. However, there might be a bigger issue, such as SQL injection. If that's the case, Netsparker will check for other possible issues and report them separately.


Analyze this issue and review the application code in order to handle unexpected errors; this should be a generic practice, which does not disclose further information upon an error. All errors should be handled server-side only.
