SFP Secondary Cluster: Exposure Temporary File
A category in the Common Weakness Enumeration published by The MITRE Corporation.
Categories in the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) group entries based on some common characteristic or attribute.
This category identifies Software Fault Patterns (SFPs) within the Exposure Temporary File cluster.
The software creates a temporary file in a directory whose permissions allow unintended actors to determine the file's existence or otherwise access that file.
Opening temporary files without appropriate measures or controls can leave the file, its contents and any function that it impacts vulnerable to attack.
Creating and using insecure temporary files can leave application and system data vulnerable to attack.
CWE identifiers in this view are associated with clusters of Software Fault Patterns (SFPs).
