A category in the Common Weakness Enumeration published by The MITRE Corporation.


Summary

Categories in the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) group entries based on some common characteristic or attribute.

Weaknesses in this category are related to rules in the Expressions (EXP) chapter of The CERT Oracle Secure Coding Standard for Java (2011).

Weaknesses

Comparison of Object References Instead of Object Contents

The program compares object references instead of the contents of the objects themselves, preventing it from detecting equivalent objects.

Signal Handler Use of a Non-reentrant Function

The program defines a signal handler that calls a non-reentrant function.

Unchecked Return Value

The software does not check the return value from a method or function, which can prevent it from detecting unexpected states and conditions.

Use of Wrong Operator in String Comparison

The product uses the wrong operator when comparing a string, such as using "==" when the equals() method should be used instead.

Concepts
