Improper Handling of Additional Special Element
The software receives input from an upstream component, but it does not handle or incorrectly handles when an additional unexpected special element is provided.
This category identifies Software Fault Patterns (SFPs) within the Faulty Input Transformation cluster.
Weaknesses in this category are typically found in functionality that processes data. Data processing is the manipulation of input to retrieve or save information.
This view (slice) covers all the elements in CWE.
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...
This view (slice) lists weaknesses that can be introduced during implementation.
