    HTML and JavaScript comments are listed in vulnerability list

    – HTML & JavaScript Comments vulnerabilities are disclosures of internal information caused by any comments in HTML or
    JavaScript present in pages. The SmartAttack examines responses containing HTML or JavaScript, and reports any
    comments observed therein. The significance of such vulnerabilities depends on the specific disclosures involved and the
    policies of the organization.

    There is no security issues associated with these comments. Do not edit WordPress core files.

    Removing and minify the JS, HTML, CSS is the best solution to speed up you site.

    I don’t recommend you do it in WP core, only for the plugins or the theme is installed.

    There are have many plugins like that, this is my plugin, I think it can help you make the change http://wpoffice.net/wp-secure-pro-plugin-wordpress/
