We analyzed the software testing approach Exploratory Testing (ET) through a systematic review of literature to understand the consequences of ET as Technical debt. The evidence shows that ET is used as an alternative to any structured software testing approach to speed up the testing tasks and proved to be cost effective at the time of testing. Nevertheless ET also has many weaknesses that are not apparent at the time of testing but prompt up in later phases of system life cycle. Theses weaknesses incur increased rework and cost, and hence are considered to be the sources of TD. In addition we propose the possible solutions to embark upon these weaknesses that indeed help to reduce the testing technical debt of ET.
