Empty Exception Block
An invokable code block contains an exception handling block that does not contain any code, i.e. is empty.
When an exception handling block (such as a Catch and Finally block) is used, but that block is empty, this can prevent the software from running reliably. If the relevant code is reachable by an attacker, then this reliability problem might introduce a vulnerability.
Weaknesses in this category are related to the CISQ Quality Measures for Reliability. Presence of these weaknesses could reduce the reliability of the software.
This category includes weaknesses that occur if a function does not generate the correct return/status code, or if the application does not handle all possible return/...
