Excessive Use of Hard-Coded Literals in Initialization
The software initializes a data element using a hard-coded literal that is not a simple integer or static constant element.
This issue makes it more difficult to modify or maintain the software, which indirectly affects security by making it more difficult or time-consuming to find and/or fix vulnerabilities. It also might make it easier to introduce vulnerabilities.
Weaknesses in this category are related to the CISQ Quality Measures for Maintainability. Presence of these weaknesses could reduce the maintainability of the software.
Weaknesses in this category are related to the CISQ Quality Measures for Maintainability, as documented in 2016 with the Automated Source Code Maintainability Measure ...
Weaknesses in this category occur in behaviors that are used for initialization and breakdown.
