Data Element Aggregating an Excessively Large Number of Non-Primitive Elements
The software uses a data element that has an excessively large number of sub-elements with non-primitive data types such as structures or aggregated objects.
This issue can make the software perform more slowly. If the relevant code is reachable by an attacker, then this performance problem might introduce a vulnerability.
While the interpretation of "excessively large" may vary for each product or developer, CISQ recommends a default of 5 sub-elements.
Weaknesses in this category are related to the CISQ Quality Measures for Efficiency. Presence of these weaknesses could reduce the efficiency of the software.
Weaknesses in this category are associated with things being overly complex.
