Abstract Website is a very popular medium for finding information. Building a website requires a lot of component files which will be stored on the server. To minimize website hacking, security is needed from the system side and the user side. Based on OWASP's TOP 10, one of the vulnerabilities that usually appears is the leakage of sensitive information due to the versioning file residing on the server. In order to minimize the leakage of sensitive information from these vulnerabilities, the authors created a Versioning Catcher Software (VCS) program which functions to detect the presence of these versioning files. The purpose of this research is to protect and prevent sensitive information from being leaked on the server. The results of the discussion of this research can be used to minimize the occurrence of server hacks as a result of the versioning file containing sensitive information that is not handled immediately.
