Core and Compute Issues
A category in the Common Weakness Enumeration published by The MITRE Corporation.
Categories in the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) group entries based on some common characteristic or attribute.
Weaknesses in this category are typically associated with CPUs, Graphics, Vision, AI, FPGA, and microcontrollers.
The CPU is not configured to provide hardware support for exclusivity of write and execute operations on memory. This allows an attacker to execute data from all of me...
The processor does not properly clear microarchitectural state after incorrect microcode assists or speculative execution, resulting in transient execution.
Specific combinations of processor instructions lead to undesirable behavior such as locking the processor until a hard reset performed.
This view organizes weaknesses around concepts that are frequently used or encountered in hardware design. Accordingly, this view can align closely with the perspectiv...
