Hello all,

A suggestion was raised on the issue page of our GitHub to change the name of "A3:2019 Improper Data Filtering":

We will be happy to get more thoughts about changing the name of the item to "Excessive Data Exposure".
What do you think?

Best,
Erez

agreed on "Excessive Data Exposure" as it is more specific towards to the technical terms instead of improper data filtering.

I also like "Excessive Data Exposure".  Improper Data Filtering is one of the issues of "Excessive Data Exposure".

I see the name has been changed. Technically "Excessive Data Exposure" sounds more reasonable. Because I think once the data leaves the trusted system (server), it becomes an exposure. What we do on the client side is just present it in a particular way.
