Lab 5.2 OS Command injection Quiz answer options


Hi guys,

In the Quiz for section 5.2, I think the current "correct" answer is not the correct answer for the question.

The question is:
Which coding practice can lead to OS command injection vulnerability?

and the current correct answer is:
Proper input validation and sanitation.

I think the question needs to be update to something like:
Which coding practice can help to prevent OS command injection vulnerability?

to match the current question, or make:

"Use of functions that directly execute commands without proper validation or escape mechanisms" the correct answer.

    Correct answer should be "Use of functions..."
