Excessive Halstead Complexity
The code is structured in a way that a Halstead complexity measure exceeds a desirable maximum.
A variety of Halstead complexity measures exist, such as program vocabulary size or volume.
This issue makes it more difficult to understand and/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 associated with things being overly complex.
This view (slice) covers all the elements in CWE.
CWE identifiers in this view (slice) are quality issues that only indirectly make it easier to introduce a vulnerability and/or make the vulnerability more difficult t...
CWE identifiers in this view are weaknesses that do not have associated Software Fault Patterns (SFPs), as covered by the CWE-888 view. As such, they represent gaps in...
