Missing Standardized Error Handling Mechanism
The software does not use a standardized method for handling errors throughout the code, which might introduce inconsistent error handling and resultant weaknesses.
If the application handles error messages individually, on a one-by-one basis, this is likely to result in inconsistent error handling. The causes of errors may be lost. Also, detailed information about the causes of an error may be unintentionally returned to the user.
Weaknesses in this category are related to the design and architecture of multiple security tactics and how they affect a system. For example, information exposure can...
