Use of Low-Level Functionality
The software uses low-level functionality that is explicitly prohibited by the framework or specification under which the software is supposed to operate.
The use of low-level functionality can violate the specification in unexpected ways that effectively disable built-in protection mechanisms, introduce exploitable inconsistencies, or otherwise expose the functionality to attack.
Weaknesses in this category are related to the use of built-in functions or external APIs.
This category identifies Software Fault Patterns (SFPs) within the Use of an Improper API cluster (SFP3).
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.
