Use of Uninitialized Variable
An uninitialized variable weakness can lead to a dreaded denial of service attack. This interactive course provides you with important information to help avoid this common coding error, refered to as CWE-457 by the Common Weakness Enumeration. The course describes the security impact of the weakness, provides examples of code showing the weakness and describes remediation strategies to mitigate the risk associated with uininitialized variables
Access now to learn how to:
- Describe uninitialized variable.
- Explain the security impact of uninitialized variables.
- Describe the technical aspects of the uninitialized variable weaknesses, with examples
- Describe remediation strategies that you can use to mitigate the problems this weakness can cause.
