Weak encryption algorithm (RC4) detected.
- Source: weak_encryption_rc4.yml
A weak encryption library can lead to data breaches and greater security risk.
According to OWASP, RC4 (Rivest Cipher 4) is considered a weak encryption algorithm and therefore shouldn't be used.
✅ Use stronger encryption algorithms when storing data.
const crypto = require("crypto");
const cipher = crypto.createCipheriv("aes-256-cbc", key, iv);
const encrypted = cipher.update("my secret message", "utf8");
